I was on San Diego’s PBS affiliate KPBS yesterday, discussing  my recent piece for San Diego City Beat about the license plate reader system in San Diego County. Check out the TV segment below, it’s about 5 minutes long. I also had a chance to sit in on KPBS’ radio program Midday Edition for a little roundtable discussion about LPR in the County. Good stuff.

Here’s the radio segment, it runs about 12 minutes.

(The full show, with great discussion about other local issues, is at the KPBS website here.)

Matt Sledge over at Huffington Post also had some observations about the City Beat story, and some of the views expressed in the comment section. Definitely worth a read.
