Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

2020-09-14 - Eye in the sky

Post by Seannery » Mon Sep 14, 2020 1:07 pm

Note to self: when I have children, use cameras that look like---what are those things called? that hang over the crib and twirl about to stimulate the baby's senses; I'd rather my children be not inured to surveillance. Well, they'll encounter it eventually, but I'll do everything in my power to instill in them my fear of being known love of privacy---might as well give them a head start towards a private life---and they'll be more wary of things that might, despite appearance, be really for surveillance, after they review their earliest (external) memories. (OK, I'm hyperbolizing---at least slightly.)

They're called mobiles. Oddly enough this makes me think one should just string together all your old mobile phones into a crib mobile. 2 birds with 1 stone...

As soon as I read ``mobiles,'' I got that exact image. And if the crib is on wheels or can be strapped into a car.. mobile crib mobiles mobiles. But siriusly I'd probably only use wired cameras---would-be intruders'd have to go through computers on my network, or have physical access to the last wire---a frightening thought---in the baby's room.

Yeah, creepy people have been hacking those IP "Check on baby from anywhere!" baby cams/monitors for a while now. You can get up to some hilarious hijinks with internet enabled photo frames as well...
