Camera Not Obscura

In the Virtualpolitik book I write about the Internet and whistle-blowing and describe how some YouTube videos feature government employees and contractors revealing backroom deals or corporate corruption. The video above by Gwen Olsen is intended to serve a whistle-blowing (and self-promotion) function in Olsen's insider's exposé of the pharmaceutical industry.

Minhaaj Rehman also notes the presence of first-person witness videos on YouTube in the form of Jimmy Justice videos on the site, which often show law enforcement officers making illegal traffic maneuvers like this one.
