There's Nothing Over Here

Since you already knew where the payphones are, here's all the cameras. Here's the ads.

Years ago, when that ad map came out, I remember a media planner running into DDB yelling, holding the map, pointing, pointing: "this is great! this is great! look, there's nothing over here!"

If I was in the surveillance business -- and I ain't saying I'm not -- that second map would be a lot more valuable to me than to the constituencies that oppose it. Just because information's for free, don't mean it's for nothing, and then every map has two sides, evidently.
