Getting Closer To A National ID System

from the good-or-bad? dept

I never posted the original stories about Ellison or McNealy, and their support for a national ID system, because I hadn’t realized that anyone would take them seriously. Silly me. People are taking them very seriously, and it appears that a national ID system is perhaps closer than we think. I see the argument for both sides, but the thing that scares me most is that I’m not sure how anyone is going to be able to keep this database secure and keep the information it contains private.
