New Tech: The Human Media

I had known this was coming out but the next step is even more amazing.

I have spoke to several people who have said that it would be possible to store data in the human body using nano technology. Forget hard wiring your brain with harddrives (like in Johnny Mnemonic). You would have to only hold your hand up to a device (like the one in the video) download the information to the nano-stuff (what ever) and then go.

I guess the next step after that would be to access the data stored in the nano-stuff and then use it with out a phone or computer. And before you know it, we will have nano-viruses and hackers reprogramming you remotely.

Fun stuff.

 Yeah, this kind of tech is

 Yeah, this kind of tech is both exciting and scary. Privacy is already becoming a thing of the past, imagine when businesses and governments can secretly plant cookies in you that track everywhere you go and everything you do. I'm sure technology designed to block such things will be racing as quickly as the technology to plant information in your body. 

 

It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken

I agree, scary and freaky.

The thought of having nano-bots in my body so they can destroy cancer cells is right around the corner. Next you'll have nano-bots regenerating your cells so you can stay young.
