[-empyre-] digital cameras or surveilling data?

Thanks so much, Malcolm, for your thoughtful reflections on the cultural importance of the digital camera.  But I'm wondering if you mean to privilege the camera per se in the context.  I'm thinking of the Wikileaks revelations and this weak's furor over the USA's scanning of the mobile phones of foreign leaders, etc.  It seems that the camera per se might be taking somewhat of a back seat to data, even though we acknowledge the growing avalanche of mobile cameras everywhere.

Just a thought
