The process of surveillance has been around for a long period. Different theories of surveillance such as the notion of the panopticon were suggested to explain the ways in which surveillance can create a more controlled society. This led to the notion of the docility and surveillance where the knowledge of surveillance can create a docile society. With the availability of newer tools, surveillance becomes more widespread, which leads to a networked surveillance. All of this eventually builds up to a process of surveillance of the life story of institutions and people.
