What’s going on!
Concerned with the privacy issue with Google map, the German government has responded to the request from 244,000 inhabitants and blurred their house on the map. I am blogging this as a perfectly bad strategy of defending for privacy as one freaks out with a bunch of others.
It has created an effect contradictory to its original purpose. Instead of being invisible, the blurred houses now stand out and draw more public attention to themselves.
It has been concluded in the classic book about military tactics, that the safest camouflage to be made is in the most conspicuous locations, for the common assumption that it is an unlikely place to hide, nets the isolation of the space that has become the perfect condition to protect the body. The blurred houses are obviously taking on the opposite strategy.
