Late last year, Jerry Brito wrote about the Narrative Clip, a digital camera about the size of a postage stamp that clips to one's breast pocket or shirt collar and takes a photo every thirty seconds of whatever one is seeing. Since then he received his Clip and wears it on occasion to catalog his day. People's reactions have been a mixed bag. Most people don't notice that you're wearing it. But when they do, their reaction is often negative. Yet despite how people feel about it, Brito's sousveillance is likely protected by the First Amendment.
