I spotted some intriguing posters last night. #sousveillance #nightphotography
@wim_v12e Kind of horrified to realize my first reaction to those messages was “yeah it’s true, we know already.”
@demonkind Sure. What intrigued me was who's behind this and why they put up these posters. You can only advertise on those kiosks when you pay.
So anyway, I worked it out, it's advertising for Netflix's "Black Mirror". Disappointing.
@wim_v12eAnd I thought it was some awesome #adbusting. Great pictures though!@demonkind
@wim_v12eIf you are one of those who put tape over your built-in #webcam, see to it that it is good solid tape. Try your cam after applying the tape and see if has a satisfying effect.
If you don't use your webcam, just remove or disconnect it (as well as built-in microphone and speakers). #tinfoil #tinfoilhat #paranoid
@wim_v12e @rtsn Nice, where's this?
@tardigrader @rtsn Thanks you! I took these in Byres Road, in the West End of Glasgow (Scotland).
@rugk @tardigrader @rtsn Well, it's disappointing. I found out that this is an ad for Netflix's "Dark Mirror".
@rugk @tardigrader @rtsn What I find funny is that this has been boosted about 50 times but only 2 people have asked me this.
OTOH, the branding is not obvious so I guess they do make people think. So I still like it.
@wim_v12e @rugk @tardigrader @rtsn I guess it's BLACK Mirror, which is awesome and relevant for our times.
@tardigrader @rugk @rtsn Yes, sorry, it is.
@wim_v12e These are a) paranoid nuttery and b) completely true.
@suetanvil Well, after I took them I found out that it is an ad for Netflix's "Black Mirror". So yes, you're right! 😃
@wim_v12e I'm both relieved and disappointed to hear that.
@suetanvil Yeah, I know exactly what you mean.
@celesteh You're right, it's a Netflix ad. I couldn't see that when I took the picture, but I looked it up. Still, quite effective, esp. at night.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
