"People have complained about photographers being stopped from taking pictures by police, PCSOs, wardens and by various officious people," he said.Link (Thanks, Chris!)
"People have a right to take photographs and to start interfering with that is crazy. It seems crazy when the streets are festooned with closed-circuit television cameras that the public should be stopped from using cameras.
"The proliferation of digital cameras and mobile phones with cameras means that everybody carries a camera these days."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
