I particularly like the phrase:
And he [Jeff Carter, CDO of Biometrics R&D firm Global Rainmakers Inc.] has a warning for those thinking of opting out: "When you get masses of people opting-in, opting out does not help. Opting out actually puts more of a flag on you than just being part of the system. We believe everyone will opt-in."

"Does not help" whom? Please Sarah Connor, marry a Mormon and be fertile for all of our sakes.

Another essential point raised in humankind's quest for human liberty and betterment of the race is: "consumers will no longer be carded at bars and liquor stores"; to which I question, though, if an entire generation of young people is robbed of the creative challenge and stimulus of making fake IDs to get into Wisconsin college bars just across the border, will there ever be another reason worthy of living into your twenties?

As the article's author, Austin Carr, puts it in conclusion... "Goodbye 2010. Hello 1984."
