Hello, I'm wondering since blackhat hackers abound on the internet, and have plans for even RFID transmitters in national IDs, and break into everything electronic and non (like lock picking) and are experts at social engineering, how nanobiotechnology will deal with the first human/machine interfaces, especially in the area of the brain. I was going to be a whitehat hacker for a while (defense) but it wasn't my vocation and was mostly curious about certain aspects, but basically, a human interacting directly with the Internet or computers, even stand alone, stand the chance of becoming "infected" as well as chips inserted in not just the brain but other areas, when anything from video games to other software have come out with virii on the manufactured DVD/CD, directly from the company. We definitely need safeguards, as well as "firewalls" for our brains and even DNA since that is our code/blueprint for healing, growing and procreating and adapting basically, since our bodies change genetically each day per reading material I've read. Also, spies, terrorists etc could be passed easily down the line genetically if implants are somehow used to change genetics, creating tendencies and even memories. I remember that some dreams/memories or near death experiences that are common are the results of what is in our genes. Even info could be passed on this way similar to hiding code inside a photo, the human body/brain is technically a computer/machine. http://www.tricksystem.com/2008/12/secretly-hide-any-file-inside-jpg-image.html
IF someone makes the connection and basically translates the machine code to human code, it's like converting from hexadecimal to base 10 in comparison. Also, stenography is basically how to hide messages and with distributed computing etc and botnets, perhaps people could be controlled or manipulated easier and is dangerous for all, especially military or scientists. Religion already shows that masses can be manipulated (especially when used improperly) as does media and entertainment such as music, movies and even books. The effects of music alone are hypnotic and activating someone, even involuntarily is not impossible nor extremely difficult. Think of something akin to the Manchurian Candidate but without direct involvement per se and no blame except against the individual. Best of luck, am tired and ill and going to rest but I have more ideas and activating individuals, since we're bio-electrical can take as little as radio waves, cell phone microwaves, EMF, an MRI etc. BTW, anyone interested in funding my education? I thought of this with a mere associates in Telecom and 3 semesters until my Telecom. I'll tell you that Ray Kurzweil is one of the people I admire and I've books of his that I checked out and also own "The Age of Spiritual Machines" since he's into nanotech as well as A.I.
