Good precautionary words
, I think that if this hasn't already happened with some of us web-junkies, then it is entirely possible for a new and advanced form of information gathering technology to become abused. However, I tend to have a more optimistic (deluded?) view of humainty in general, and see, on average ,a greater pragmatic use of a technology such as this one.
But all is not rosey through these eyes. I envision another opportunity to widen the gap between the Haves and Have-nots. Perhaps accelerating the disparity between the two groups at alarming rates. Could this be the "Killer-tech" that gives such an advantage to one group that they are viewed as a distinct species, if not by definition, than by capabilities? I beleive this to be reasonably extreme, but a scary posibility nonetheless.
