America 2.0

I just received a link to this item from The Dark Wraith with the following note (posted here with DW's permission):
People think I am some kind of conspiracy theorist when I talk about the extraordinary, pervasive profiling being done by the government and corporations (including search engines like Google). What you will read about at that link is a major step in filling in a key class of fields in consumer preference profiles, and this is most decidedly information both the government and commercial interests have wanted because online transactions are becoming more common and more indicative of individuals’ psychographic profiles.

And this latest ridiculous prying into private choices and preferences is in a bill introduced by none other than Sen. Chris Dodd.
Fare thee well, America 1.0. It was nice knowing ye.

More America 2.0 here.
