"Who watches the watchers?" goes the adage that's more relevant than ever in a world of pervasive surveillance cameras and arrests for filming police. Rich Jones has one suggestion: your phone. The OpenWatch suite lets users choose to make either an audio file or a video, recording invisibly when it's activated and running in the background of the operating system. The user can also choose to upload them to OpenWatch, where clips that show noteworthy interactions with police are anonymized and posted. — By chrisballinger at 9:21 AM Wed
