May 8 - Day 4: Security, Identification & Virtual Presence

We will look at ways in which security, identification, privacy, and individuality will be affected. We are constantly being surveyed, judged, evaluated, classified, etc. The technologies that will be "marketed" to us will seemingly solve problems and have desired features, but will require us to be an even more tightly coupled part of the machine. This includes physical control of the outside world with our minds, as well as the outside world being able to control our minds.
