For all the paranoid loonies out there I’d just like to remind you that Big Brother is still watching you. Someone at work recieved a notice the other day from Queanbeyan City Council stating they wanted to come out and inspect his pool fence. He’s got a small above ground pool set up in his backyard that he hadn’t told them about. And it wasn’t a dobbing neighbour peeking over the fence or a dog walker.
They had discovered the pool by taking a satellite image of the area that then located the blue spots in peoples yards, determined the address and set out a notice all nice and automatically. So I wouldn’t be putting up any unapproved structures or cutting down any significant trees because Big Brother is watching (at least in Queanbeyan).
