Conor Friedersdorf (The Atlantic) and Kashmir Hill (Fusion)

Conor and Kashmir kick things off by discussing whether Google Glasses will create a surveillance state. Conor argues that the government is eventually going to legislate new privacy norms. Kashmir explains why she’s fascinated by the case of a college football player arrested for taping the sounds of a dorm mate having sex.

And Conor predicts that people will start taking a “flood the zone” approach to protecting their privacy.
