We all have our perceptions on how far we can go and ‘get away with it’ and depending on the setting this might differ wildly, but one thing is for sure in both these settings computers will be present both as gaping security holes and as great boons both for PCs and organizations of all kinds.
Sometimes the players will be the one under survelliance, sometimes they might be what we jokingly call ‘offensive security experts’ of some kind.
If you want to actually induce paranoia to the game or get the survelliance state driven home hard to the players consider this :
Amnesty International has released a new tool called Detekt, it is in many ways a scary program, not Detekt itself, but the fact that this program might be needed in modern society.
Have a player’s computer indicate surveliance then hand them Amnesty’s list of things to do if you detect survelliance and you have a session right there...
Other good sources is the white hat hacking sites, not for the tutorials on hacking but as a guide to what actually can be done with modern tech and as an extrapolation what might be done with future tech.

No wonder I'm basing a character in a new game we are developing on the current Prime Minister. :-)
50 little fiddly fields updated with new code to make them doubleclickable to expediate both lab-work and spontaneous casting.
Turns out that to be able to pull the description contents to the scrips you need to actually have a <description>Description here</description> set of tags instead of the older and deprecheated <description text="Description Here" /> tag.
Spell fields updated to be collapsible to ease searching through for the right one.
Some small popup info fields to make using the charactersheet easier. Might decide to pre-populate the skill-list with some basic skills everyone would have in the next release, basic code is now present for this.
So all in all version 22.214.171.124 will be out sometime this afternoon.
Worse, media ends up reporting about it and screws up the facts so badly that I want to scream.
They reported that "in the original Kristallnacht right-wing elements in then Nazi Germany destroyed Jewish business establishments...."
* 7500 Jewish businesses isn't a few.
* 1400 burned Synagogues are apparently not enough to get mentioned.
* Nor is the 1500 dead.
* Or even some 30 000 Jewish men arrested and sent to concentration camps.
* ... right-wing? Nazi is German and stems from Nationalsozialist or National-Socialist.
Or even exchanged if you run houserules.
Which should I invest in? Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen?
Kinetic energy is easy enough at KE = (mv^2)/2 but when it then comes down to Joules needed to defeat armour I seem unable to come up with a working formula.
Even a ballpark figure would be a nice thing to have, certainly much easier than actually reading through a lot of WW2 reports on various types of ammo and/or going over weapon and pistols sorting hype from fact and fiction.
