We are the metro region that is home to many world-renowned technology companies, including Seagate, Micron, and Cray, the Supercomputer company.
So instead of having our police department looking like something out of 1984 when it comes to open video records, how about we do something like Seattle and hire some of the people that make public records requests.
You might even find out that there are a few amateur politicians who raised the issue in the last mayoral election. In fact, you might even find someone who’s built a few supercomputers. Let’s engage our technology industry and hacker community to enable public review and accountability for video footage recorded on behalf of the public good. This is a growth industry for the world, and we can follow Seattle, or lead the world, and create a lot of good high paying jobs in the process.
