Face recognition for the children

[Ad box removed; this image serves to flag pages that need to be updated in my log file.]

This story is all about fighting child pornography, and of course we're not allowed to say that there's anything wrong with such efforts.  But just try zooming in on a few details of the proposed program.  Face recognition applied on a large scale.  Profiling and tracking of whom suspects have communicated with (note that's intended primarily to cover possible victims, not just other suspects).  Worldwide sharing of the resulting databases.  Are these good things?  [Face recognition for the children]
