Tor.com blogger and art-department guy Pablo Defendini‘s just-for-fun silkscreened poster for Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother has already become something of a meme. Now Cory, at Boing Boing, notes a report in Seattle’s The Stranger that the “camerahead” image from Pablo’s poster is being deployed as political theater, in a protest against the City of Seattle’s decision to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on surveillance cameras installed throughout the city’s public parks.
