Drones of all sizes are being used by ecology advocates to adviser deforestation, by conservationists to track poachers, and by journalists and activists to certificate large protests. As a political sociologist who studies social movements and drones, I certificate a wide range of irenic and pro-social drone uses in my new book, “The Good Drone.” I show that these efforts have the abeyant to adjust surveillance.

But when the Department of Homeland Security redirects large, fixed-wing drones from the U.S.-Mexico border to adviser protests, and when towns agreement with using drones to test people for fevers, it’s time to think about how many eyes are in the sky and how to avoid exceptionable aerial surveillance. One way that’s within reach of nearly anybody is acquirements how to simply abandon from view.

Crowded skies

Over the past decade there’s been an access in the public’s use of drones – accustomed people with accustomed tech doing absorbing things. As drones enter already-crowded airspace, the Federal Aviation Administration is disturbing to respond. The near future is likely to see even more of these accessories in the sky, flown by an ever-growing cast of social, political and bread-and-butter actors.
