Last Call Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:


In less than two weeks the Republican National Convention kicks off in Tampa, and Big Brother will be watching.

Today on Last Call we talked with Jon Gales about the new closed-circuit surveillance cameras installed in Tampa for the convention. He has a new website called It has a map of the location of dozens of the cameras.

We talked about why they are there and whether they might come down after the convention.

This is beautiful! I wonder if this app could be fitted and modeled for other cities which host permanent civilian spy-cams.
