Tracking Identity ... Cradle to Grave
It is only a matter of time before this is going on almost everywhere. It seems today that most of our government tracked actions are recorded ... but in many different and separate databases. This appears to be an effort for the Dutch citizens to see a unification of their identity information for a variety of sociological benefits. Yes ... I know that many people are cringing at this. To me it only makes sense that it's going ot occur ... it's inevitable.
Dutch Treat: Personal Database. Starting in 2007, every baby born in the Netherlands will receive a Citizens Service Number and will have an electronic dossier opened in a central database. This will allow Dutch authorities to track each citizen from cradle to grave. [Wired News]
