Dutch Treat?!

15 09 2005

“The Dutch government will begin tracking every citizen from cradle to grave in a single database, opening a personal electronic dossier for every child at birth with health and family data, and eventually adding school and police records.”

The article on Wired does say this will help raise a “red flag” to alert authorities when a child is in trouble etc. But really is this a good thing?

Would they also provide a record clearing option for the powerful? Will there be an equivalent of the memory erasure in the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. (Don’t you see a market for a record erasure service?)
