I take the title of this blog from a comment just received in response to the galvanic thingie (I have trouble remembering if it is a GSR or a GRS, a galvanic skin response monitor or a galvanic response skin monitor).
The title seemed appropriate for an article sent by another reader. This one describes a decision by a Texas school district to put GPS necklaces on their students so that they can be tracked during school hours. If that sounds far-fetched, note that other districts in Texas and California are already using the GPS devices to improve attendance. A town in Brazil plans to have its students wear uniforms embedded with a GPS device.
Amazing how so many small steps may be taken without much alarm. And one day we will find that government and corporations can watch our every move. Will we be wearing bracelets or necklaces or will we have microchips implanted at birth.
Technies gone wild indeed. At some point, we will recognize those techies as our bosses.
