I submitted someone else's DNA. Small price to pay for invisibility. It's flawed because I could be tagged with my pal's traits. But in the near future, we'll be buying/selling "prime DNA" for our test submittals, on street corners, like clean pee at La Tour de France.
(OOps, I meant to submit anonymous coward, instead of this hacked 'retroworks' account).

1/3 Subscriptions, 1/3 Advertising, 1/3 Classifieds. That was the recipe for newspaper income in the 1970s and 80s. They retrenched initially and lost the Classifieds to Ebay and Craigslist. Now they have 2 which deny each other, if they give free access they gain Advertising, but lose subscriptions, if they charge for Subscription, they may lose Advertising.

It should be easy enough for someone here to harvest phonebook or other records from 70 years ago, refresh and randomize birth dates, and begin to flood the identity theft market with fake personalities and random government identity records. That would greatly increase the amount of work for identity thieves, who actually benefit from passwords (which provide evidence it's bonafide identity they are stealing). For years I've promoted "camouflage" rather than invisibility. I now think the reason it has not taken off (disappearance of AntiPhorm?) is that it's equally a threat to Google, Bing, and advertising-based search engines. We can be less careful of our "identity needles" if we construct bigger "digital haystacks".

Oh, by the way, I'm not really Retroworks. I find I get higher mods if I steal a
Advisories from the coast guard and the Japan Meteorological Agency said the islet is about 200 meters (660 feet) in diameter.
A volcanologist with the coast guard told that it was possible the new island might be eroded away. “But it also could remain permanently,” he said.
The last time the volcanos in the area are known to have erupted was in the mid-1970s. Much of the volcanic activity occurs under the sea."
