|Technology vs `Terrorism': Circuits of City Surveillance since September 11th|
I had no more than a slight feeling of apprehension when the pilot of the plane on which I was flying said we were obliged to make an unscheduled landing, under direction from the airline. I had never before heard of such an order but I assumed, like everyone else, that some simple explanation would be forthcoming when we landed. But I did fear that I might miss my connection to Singapore from Vancouver. It was the morning of September 11th 2001 and as yet no symbolic charge was attached to that date.
