• Don’t fence me in!

    Read in ZDNet UK News the following snippet:
    Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), a US company that has been awarded the contract to provide IT security at the Olympics, […] SAIC also plans to set up an electronic fence around the Olympics, using infrared and high-resolution cameras, and vehicle tracking systems. An airborne surveillance centre will float above the site of the Games.

    Makes you wonder if these guys know that the “site of the Games” and “the Olympics” extends from Thessaloniki over Volos, Patras and Olympia to Iraklio… Oh, and I forgot Athens. This is going to be one big fence! I hope they took the trouble of consulting a map of this part of the Mediterranean.
