In the future, Google will know where you are all day, everyday, according to Nigel Gilbert, a professor heading a Royal Academy of Engineering study into surveillance.
Gilbert said people will be able to type "what was a particular individual doing at 2.30 yesterday?" and get an accurate answer. The specualtion is based on the growth of data collected on the internets, including bank records, transaction records and search records, and the growing availability of that information.
I, for one, think this is a great thing. I figure this will save me a lot time in stalking ex-girlfriends. Driving slowly up and down her street all night with my headlights off is time-consuming and with fuel costs the way they are, not economical. I'd love to be able to type "Is Natalie Portman with THAT MAN right now?" And then be able to drive to Privlege and show give them what's coming to them.
PS: You could search for me on any given day last week and you would come up with either "Was playing Bully," or "Was watching porn," both of which are pursuits I'm proud of.
Somehow, though, I doubt the public's being able to watch everyone won't extend to our leaders.
