thing that gets me is...

...we are social animals and nothing beats real life, RL, meatspace or what ever you want to call it. Deep down inside we must all know this. Nothing beats talking to a friend face to face, even though it may be raining and the bus is taking ages to get home because you are stuck in traffic.

When was the last time you ever said to a friend "that was a great tweet, blog post, yada yada"?

Why are we so fascinated with on-line ghosts?

Some techies smell, others fear sunlight but most are normal people that have (shudder) social lives, friends and families.

If this guy is a Prof then I am a CEO of a major start-up.

Das überdatabase: Inside Wacky Jacqui's motherbrain


the good news

- If this is based on MS SQL then the jihadi massive have nothing to fear as the system won't work

- If the system(s) are reliant on using under-paid, poorly trained, over worked staff and agency staff then the jihadi massive ... won't work

- If anything has to go in the post...won't work

- call centers won't have to "record your call for training purposes" cos some one else will

- the entire population of <insert large Muslim community here> will melt the system every time it's Muhammad's birthday

But seriously I can see the future;

- no doubt that the yanks will bully the gov't for the data and the UK yield to the yanks. special relationship, uk bends over <insert major crisis around the corner>

- the yanks will probably demand that all eu nations have a silly system like this

- the next step will be an integrated, international system

- the next step will be a simple way to search for relevant information
