Jackboots and Cyborgs

When the swat team comes storming in with RIAA on the back of their outfits, demanding that you kick your hard-drive over to them, nice and slow, with no sudden movements, don't say I didn't warn you. Yeah, first we have a government full of jackbooted thugs, and now we've got to deal with an angry record industry full of them too.

Be careful who's on the mailinglists you moderate. You could be a terrorist because of them.

Meanwhile, I'm going to be a cyborg when I grow up, just like this guy. If I remember correctly, this is the same chap that had an unfortunate run-in with airport security shortly after the WTC incident. This goes into more detail about his tech, which makes for some very interesting first-gen stuff. It's cool that he's getting that into it, because it opens the door for the rest of us to not get that into it.

Think though, about the power involved in RML, reality-markup-language. Objects in the real world become wiki's, and anyone can edit the notations on them to communicate. Tagging takes on a whole new meaning (and what happens when you mark your turf with a .jpg that you photoshopped last night, instead of with spray-cans).
