Merging Man and Machine: We are the internet
Well this is interesting stuff I just came across... a bit, frightening to say the least, considering the implications for this could be used for very
bad things, but of course the only stuff brought up is how it could be used positively... let's take a look, shall we.
The internet initially began as a researching tool and a networking test bed. The internet has evolved over the years and with the click of a button
you can find information on nearly any subject that strikes your fancy. The internet of today is a networking tool more than anything else. The rise
of social networking websites allows netizens to use these networks like a virtual diary and discuss every sordid detail of their lives with ease.
The internet of tomorrow is being constructed today and I believe you should be informed as you have invested much time and energy into it.
“Computers have reached the point in which continuous, verbatim recording of an individual's life experiences is technologically feasible. The
challenge now is turning vast repositories of such recordings into a useful resource while respecting the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of
ubiquitous recording. We have built a "memory prosthesis" that can be used to amass such data for the purpose of helping people with common,
everyday memory problems.” –Sunil Vemuri
There have been many public technological advances that have allowing people who have lost limbs in wars to walk again. Contact lenses with special
circuitry are being tested at this moment that will eventually allow the blind to see for the first time. There was once particular undertaking where
a monkey remotely moved a pair of robotic arms and now they are using monkey’s brains to pilot Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Technology is rapidly
advancing far beyond the days of ‘Operation Acoustic Kitty’. An improvement on the internet is now on the chalk board and they will attempt
improve you and I along with it.
“If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, don't tell Intel researchers. Intel's Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain
implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020…There are still more implications to creating a seamless brain
interface, besides having more cyborgs running around. If scientists can translate brain waves into specific actions, there's no reason they could
not create a virtual world with a full spectrum of activity tied to those brain waves. That's right -- we're seeing Matrix creep.” –Intel Wants
Brain Implants in Its Customers' Heads by 2020
First off, monkeys are controlling unmanned aircraft? Since when? And who the heck authorized this?! Second,

Heads by 2020"
- Umm, okay? How many of you are ready to allow a chip to be put into your brain justified by it making it easier for you to
buy products? Sounds like a joke, but it's not!
How about we learn to use our minds, without the use of technology being put into our brains, and learn to do things telepathically? That would be
much cooler, and much better for us all since we'd be evolving much more in that sense wouldn't you say? That may sound ridiculous to you, but does
telepathic communications sound more ridiculous than getting brain chips implanted? You decide.
