I don't mean to have my statements construed as supporting privacy. I wish to make the point that such changes to open up full information flow may require a very significant lifestyle change, and so much that we might have our cultural notions turned upside down and might need to set up a new variety of society to function. Not wearing clothes (for the purpose of concealment) would surely qualify as one of such possible changes.

I vote for the Global Mind Link and full disclosure. Meanwhile, we have to consider those unwilling to take part in such an experience, and perhaps setting up a new colony where we can live without worrying about terrorists and other anti-progressive behavior would provide the best solution.
