In 1968, pop artist Andy Warhol declared that in the future everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes. As with many other predictions, it has not quite turned out like that.

Social networks such as Facebook and micro-blogging services such as Twitter have begun a trend which could see more and more of the information about us viewable more of the time. Add to that wider use of video cameras, sensors, RFID tags, geotags and other smart systems and we face a future in which we are under scrutiny all the time.
