My point is that recording and trying to 'stay safe' and not be harassed is not yet 'transparent', so we do the best we can, try to remember, try to figure out the delivery system to having your recorder and your firearm and your cell phone always with you, and armed, charged up and running (etc.)
Right now, I have:
3. Good habits;
4. Best technology I can afford.
If both my partner and I have cellphones, recorders, firearms, SA, and so forth, the chances that both of us will forget all of the above is remote.
That's 'transparency' by brute force. True transparency will occur in something like the auto-sunglasses camera, or in the more distant future, a USB port in your head. (don't laugh!).
