I've been noticing a number of people (non-Extropians
so far as I know, but not necessarily opposed to our
philosophy) say that cameras are forbidden,
restricted, or just frowned upon in so many places
that they won't carry a camera around in public, and
won't buy gear with embedded cameras that they would
otherwise want with them at most times (like cell
phones or PDAs).  I, myself, have similar reasons for
not carrying a camera.
