The Taiwanese Overton Window on using (surveillance) technology against Covid-19

If we really need to introduce surveillance technologies in combating COVID-19, what would be the models, ideas and practices to look after? And what might be the consequences for the whole society if those means are implemented? I did a quick one concept graph over the dinner table (again).

Overton window: “an approach to identifying the ideas that define the spectrum of acceptability of governmental policies.”

Original idea produced by Jan-David, an editor of about:intel based at Stiftung Neue Verantwortung in Berlin. I took it further to explain what it’s like in Taiwan.
