Technology + Law Enforcement = Privacy Risk

In the January issue of Reason (again), Julian Sanchez has a very interesting, and very disturbing, article about the increasingly sophisticated uses to which technology can be put in the search for illicit conduct (or, more accurately, conduct that someone in authority has decided ought to be illicit), and the serious risks that this poses for our privacy rights. I guess the moral of the story is to be careful not to peek on the internet that the local constabularly has decided on its own might constitute child pornography. Silly? You bet.
