    I listened to this and enjoyed it.

    A couple things

    I am not sure if the password tattoos and pills are about being lazy, at least in the consumer market. I think they would be more like appealing to peoples egos, just imagine the God like feeling one could have if things around them reacted by proximity.

    There is an annoying side about dealing with adverts in differing media mediums such as Back to the Future II, Minority report, and a few books by Neal Stephenson.

    As far as buying things, this can already be done with a cell phone, or with those credit cards that touch to the credit machine to pay. So the whole mark of the beast thing, not so much. Yet I feel this was dealt with in the show by signifying this may be more of a concern for those that are more religious minded.

      We regularly deal in wild exaggeration and dubious research :) Plus we love sending up anyone who sees a conspiracy around every corner. Also, I think you’re right – a lot of it has to do with fashion, ego, early adoption mentality etc. Thanks for listening!

        Excellent, I can appreciate vicarious catharsis through media.

    The Beast has arrived…and its name is the Google/NSA private-public initiative. You will be bound to your device, all data will be collected, and your behavior will be modeled. All dissenters will be sent to re-education camps.

      Please, Mr. Reagan, say it ain’t so??!!?!?!?! I’m reminded of Harry Dean Stanton in RED DAWN – “Avenge me!!!”

        With the popularity of public-private partnerships, you can’t expect ole scratch to miss the opportunity!

        On the plus side, it will give me the opportunity to move on to an exciting second career as an amateur surgeon. I’m stockpiling hacksaw blades and gauze already! And I’ve got the flyer text ready:

        “Took the Mark of the BEAST (TM) before you realized what it was? Let Emperor Reagan, (fake) MD, fix your problem!

        Pack 1 lb of rice, 1 lb of lentils, and 6 cans of assorted vegetables into a bag. Hike into the state park, following the orange blazes. At the 13th orange blaze, head southwest approximately 1200 paces until you see a large oak tree marked with a V in blue chalk, 2 feet above the ground.

        Leave the food underneath the oak tree. Head due west an additional 400 paces. Another large oak will be marked with a V in yellow chalk. A canteen will be tucked into a small directly below the V. Drink the contents of the canteen and lean against the tree.
        When you come to, the appendage which offends the sight of God shall no longer trouble you.”
