Really, really, really? the article: explains how the FBI has a free app for iphones parents upload pictures and vital stats of their children in the event they go missing to help out law enforcement on the spot to faster find child. Does anyone really believe this?

No, this is a way for the government to have a record of every child, picture stats including any medical information,or problems they might have, at every age. Birth certificates isn’t enough they want more,they want to know everything,all the time.
Once again coming up with something “all for the sake of protecting the children” I don’t think so.
This is riding on the back of controlling internet no matter what name they try to give it. Protecting IP act, protect the children, copyrightblah blah blah,
It does keep coming up many companies,social media, variety of people want,people only to use their real names when participating on the net, going away the Anonymity, or nicknames. A few arguments,it would be easier to find criminals, and censorship, believing people won’t state their thoughts and opinions as much, when a real name is attached.

I predict the future of how internet will work. The US Government believes they own it, through out the world. They will have a special internet to spy and/or give out propaganda to other countries citizens. They will make it illegal for any person in the US to have the same kind of technology, when they do shut down the internet to all US civilians which includes cell phone communications as well.Sending the U.S. back to the days of good ol US postal snail mail, limiting communication, the post office will love to gain back the revenue.
Meanwhile, the government will create a pamphlet all the rules of internet use, similar to each states hand guide to get a drivers license, will require it in schools and the kids will have to pass the test and use a thumb print to go online. Every device that can get to the internet will require some kind of unique verification for each person. There is the child protection part,, they will already have years of pictures and stats on the child, and with the unique identifier, know every key stroke made,the persons words or actions outside any implied guideline- poof- cant login again,ever. But how far will that go? Will people start killing and maiming each other for login info?

A bout a week ago the husband suggested I look up Protecting IP and/or Protecting IP act. Apparently, its my new issue to follow these days. I do find it very concerning in many aspects.

DATA PROTECTION:
article 8/2011 : The War on Web Anonymity

Wikipedia on protecting IP act

cnet article: “Protect IP copyright bill

Who is the IP act really protecting

Building a Subversive Grassroots Network
The 3rd paragraph down “The Open Technology Initiative—part of the public-policy think tank New America Foundation—recently received a US $2 million grant from the Department of State to help coordinate its MANET development effort, called Commotion Wireless. The organization’s goal is to get MANET technology ready for use in areas that have oppressive regimes. ”
and 2nd to last paragraph
In addition to making it easy to set up a MANET, Commotion needs to make sure that the ad hoc networks are secure and anonymous so that citizens can use them without being afraid of persecution. To do this, Commotion will be adding a piece of software called Tor, which masks the sources and destinations of network traffic, and testing it in urban areas in the United States, such as Detroit, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. “Before we put people’s lives on the line, we want to test this out in a real-world setting,” Meinrath says.
