I bet Governments will 'regulate' the crap out of this unfortunatly

The Futurist

Reuben,

Governments would certainly like to do that, especially in order to collect taxes and fees. But the technology will outpace them, operate from overseas, etc. Technology always finds a way around restrictive regulation over time.

The ATOM publication has a detailed discussion about how technology finds its way around regulatory barriers.

Idiocraties

Actually,I think this is one technology governments will be all over like a bad suit. Any country with a socialised health care system will adopt this. Why? because socialised health care doesn't work, and its a constant complaint from the electorate and a voting issue. It is one of the simple issues that people vote on.

Any government that can make health care abundant (and thereby effective for the people) will win support at the voting booths.
