LONDON, England (CNN) -- At best you would probably associate airships with enormous floating advertisements, at worst, the Hindenburg disaster, but what might seems a form of transportation from another era is currently undergoing a re-launch. From high-altitude surveillance to a hybrid luxury cruise liner, our skies may soon be home to the next generation of multi-purpose airship. (Full story)

Are you worried by the advance of "Big Brother" technology such as spying airships?

People should be entitled to ther privacy unless it's a matter of national security.

No. As long that you are someone that does not break the law, or involved in any type of illegal activity, then why should you be? We need the most help we can get, the cheapest way we can achieve the goals of our security. The airship idea does not require the burning of fossil fuels, so this idea will definitely help in savings on the climate. The most important aspect to any type of "Big Brother" system is that as long that it is in use for the right reasons, then no harm should come to any of our citizens or invade their privacy. If another terrorist attack happened, most people would ask, why didn't someone do more to keep a watch for these types of activities? Then of course point blame wherever they feel necessary.
