In regards to the OP, you do realize you're on the Internet right? You rail against someone using a technology capable of keeping tabs on them, yet
you spread this message via a technology which is capable of tracking and giving out far - FAR - more detailed information about you. This doesn't
Further, you don't seem to understand how laborious a task Data Mining is. Oh, it's very possible - and companies do it all the time. But for a
central organization to keep tabs on every person's every action on the planet over vast amounts of time via "chip" in the kind needed for your
dystopian view of the future or even current day is mind boggling. It's not feasible. Sure, they can collect all that information, but what are they
going to do with it? Computer can help sort it out, such as the case with flagging emails, but even that can only go so far.
And finally, I am fully in support of getting my chip. Indeed, I want more than a chip. I want brain augmentation, with pinpoint accuracy in the
recording of memories, information, and images - as well as external storage. I want to upload my experiences to the network and download other
people's experiences to live them out. I want improved physiological preformance via Gene Therapy and Nanomachines that would allow me to dive in the
oceans for hours at a time at incredible depths with no need for an airtank. That help to eradicate disaease both genetic and pathogenic. I want a
powered exo-skeleton that allows me to run at great speeds and lift far more than I currently can. I want to be able to access the internet with my
mind, communicate the world over using only thought. I want to merge with technology.
Some of that stuff is still pretty much Sci-Fi.. some is close to reality.. and some of it IS reality.
So yes. I'll take my chip, and the rest of it too. I embrace transhumanism.
Viva la Ghost in the Shell, as it were.
