March 15, 2013 — Leave a comment

“The emergence of the “global mind” where the thoughts and feelings of billions of people are connected to each other through increasingly intelligent devices and things bristling with sensors. That connection has given rise to a “stalker economy” where you get tracked everywhere you go, and even changed the relationship between dairy farmers and some cows who have sensors embedded to alert the farmer when they can get pregnant. “When the cow comes into heat, she texts the farmer,” Gore says. “It’s the first known example of interspecies sexting.” – Al Gore
