Roger all that. Ive been lurking on a wearables list and have been toying
with the idea of a borganism kind of sitch, a global brain, where volunteers
would wear wireless camera glasses and offer one's current view of the
world to anyone else in the borg. You would remove them in your house
of course, or when you were visiting Mike Lorrey. {8-] Or when you
were in the john. Or I guess you could just not look down then. {8^D

That all-information-all-the-time business really gets me jazzed.

Me too. Constant connection to the internet would be like tacking
on about 30 IQ points. I could get up into the normal range. Well,
depending on where you surf of course. Might subtract 30.
