A collaborative blog written by UK privacy experts whose areas of expertise cover CCTV, IPTV, biometrics, data protection, RFID, 'smart; technology.  As society rapidly catapults us into a world of 'smart' cities/grids, data mapping, huge databases the areas of differing technologies overlap in the surveillance grid that is gathering around us.

Katrina Day - Campaigner against human digital implants and digital tattoos pushing to adopt legislation in Britain by which adults cannot be micro-chipped or digitally tattooed without their informed consent and that minors cannot be micro-chipped or digitally tattooed under any pretext, medical, security or any other according to the blue print of The Bodily Integrity Act: http://www.antichips.com/legislation.htm , www.spychips.com
Due to her expertise in computer science and clinical nutrition Katrina has spent time researching medical and other applications of micro-chips along with other types of chips available: RFID, DNA chips, bio-chips, nano bots, their applications, counter arguments and side-effects.

Steve Jolly
- spokesperson for NoCCTV.  Successfully campaigned against Project Champion - a ring of 'spy' cameras in Birmingham in 2011, resulting in the scheme being disbanded.  Active commentator against intrusions to privacy, regularly contributing to alternative and mainstream media.

Pippa King - campaigns against intrusions to children's privacy in education.  Author of Biometrics in schools and Against RFID in schools blogs  She campaigned from 2005 after her children were nearly fingerprinted at primary school for a library system, along with other parents and privacy organisations, against schools using children's biometrics and for parents to have openness and transparency on this topic.  From 2001-2013 schools had been taking children's biometric data without consultation or consent from parents for library, cashless catering & registration purposes.  As a result of lobbying MPs the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 was passed in May 2012 which requires that schools must now gain written parental consent if they wish to store/process a child's biometric data.  She continues to raise awareness of the wider implications on adult society with biometrics and RFID technology, pushing for debate and transparency.
