This is an interesting article on body-integrated technology: PERVASIVE (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4059011.stm) Not too sure if this is creepy or just silly.

I could sure go for some OCtattoos and the like. But i'd have to be convinced of security. I'm all for connections, but i'd rather no direct links to my nervous system. Too much like a always online connection into you brain. With the internet as it is now and for the forseeable future. No way. (The internet could do with a big 'ol AI to watch for malevolent shit. A bird's eye view of data in transit)

I personally think phones in your clothing is a bit silly. I'm all for the other stuff...but why the hell do i want a gadget in my clothing...maybe i don't want to be contacted?
