Bank Teller Machines and 911
I just had a crazy idea and had to write it down somewhere. Why don't bank teller machines respond to 911? They have a numeric keypad, and their users are also a target for potential victimization. And they are everywhere. They also include video cameras. Knowing that a teller machine was also directly wired to the police might make criminals reconsider violent attacks near them. Of course if your pin number is 911x, there might be some problems, but I suspect these are easily changed. Nothing to do with Qwaq, Inc or Croquet... but so what?
