copying a proposed British system of handling asylum seekers, a representative for the Norwegian Progress Party now wants to electronically mark people seeking refuge with wrist bands in order to locate them easier. firstly he wishes to mark people with a criminal history, but it is easy to see how practical this would be when hunting down the 3,000 people annually disappearing from their assigned shelter homes.

this is, as draconian it may seem at first look, a system with possibilities. and since the representative cannot see any negative effects from it, there is no reason why it should not be expanded upon. I can't imagine a better system in traffic, i.e. where past traffic offenders would carry a chip in their driver's license or in their active ignition, transmitting their whereabouts to their fellow trafficants.

also, I would deeply appreciate the ability to instantly tell, when negotiating a business deal, whether the other party has been involved in white-collar crimes. perhaps a discreet ring enabled with Bluetooth would do the trick? or a short beep interrupting their voice every thirty seconds or so?

okay mind, start boggling.
