Name: dan

From: New Jersey

Bio: Mensa and I do some web design work

Area of Expertise: Entrepreneur/Business Leader

Topic: Privacy

Headline: Walking Toward 1984 in 2004

Nutshell: Freedoms will be lost and privacy will not exist.

Vision: There are already camaras on street corners, digital records of car tolls, easily tapped cell phones and a variety of internet communications almost anyone can read. Soon, the Xray machines at all airports will see through cloths. Privacy will be a thing of the past, like ozone, not too long from now.
