On the 29th April 2010 I logged into Wikipedia.org and made changes to the 'surveillance' page, adding uberveillance and some relevant references in what I had determined at the time to be a very pertinent location for it's inclusion.

Nothing unusual in thinking that the action of doing so would need defense. To be honest I was expecting it to happen.

History records my entry. History also records my interaction with those who sought to remove the inclusion - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Alexanderhayes

It was removed soon after by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Jrtayloriv

I now notice that the same user instigated the following removal of POV EDU from Wikipedia complete in August 2010 which ended up retracable here in Wikibin - http://wikibin.org/articles/uberveillance.html

The comments section is of most interest.

As noted in the "articles for deletion" considerations section - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/POV_EDU - pertaining to this term my inclusion was deemed "non-notable".

User Whpq - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Whpq -  seems to have completed as much reconnaissance as Jrtayloriv in looking at the educational uses of point-of-view technologies. A quick search of the term POV and education would have lead them both here - http://www.streamfolio.com/examples/ - undeniable proof that the use of these technologies have gone beyond a phenomenon to a reality.

The same user I note has removed all reference to their worldly existence from their profile which went to great lengths to describe previously where they lived, what they believed in and so on. It seems that I will have to consult with Leigh Blackall now as to what he suggests is a more logical recourse through Wikiversity and so on.
