A Dutiful Finger in a Swiss Cheese Dike

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Last night I thought, "I wish I could transform tasks I have to do into food I could eat." And now I'm going to transform some outrage into some action. We should try to avert this scheme to gather data on any airline passenger, since it does not allow for correction or even viewing by the passenger, among other reasons. (Via Kuro5hin.)
