Scientists at Harvard have already discovered a way of storing around 700 terabytes of digital data on one strand of synthesized DNA, weighing just one gram. Looking even further into the future, it is proposed that digital information can be “injected” into bacteria.

We have seen how money substitution has been evolving: bank cheques, credit cards, prepaid cash cards. Now, new technologies are offering new ways. Maybe each time we go further away from the real value of money.
When you say, ‘I have nothing to hide,’ you’re saying, ‘I don’t care about this right.’ You’re saying, ‘I don’t have this right, because I’ve got to the point where I have to justify it.’ The way rights work is, the government has to justify its intrusion into your rights.
