A Spy Machine of DARPA’s Dreams. (via Blogdex) There’s already serious ethical considerations in human genome sequencing (for instance, if you have a gene to predispose you toward a disease, insurance companies could deny you coverage), but this project takes notions of privacy to a whole other level. Do you want someone to know what you had for breakfast, which articles you read, and exactly what keystrokes you hit on the keyboard? Do you want someone to have access to your medical records, your grocery list, the transcript of your latest kinky encounter? If this information is gathered, a stranger could know you, could track you down, could impersonate you. Very scary.
