Cameras Protecting Other Cameras
There is a proposal in Scotland to protect automatic speed-trap cameras from vandals by monitoring them with other cameras.
Then, I suppose we need still other cameras to protect the camera-watching cameras.
I am reminded of a certain building corner in York. Centuries ago it was getting banged up by carts and whatnot, so the owners stuck a post in the ground a couple of feet away from the corner to protect it. Time passed, and the post itself became historically significant. So now there is another post a couple of feet away from the first one to protect it.
When will it end?
