I can see there come a day soon enough where corporations and govt.'s jointly sponsor "Have you used the Internet yet today?" PSA's on billboards and buses et al., because the 'Net will be the main source they rely on to keep a keen eye on their markets and subjects, respectively. A new class of software will sprout up from this, that "acts normal" for you in an online life, visiting gmail and failbook and cnn.com and other sites that are "safe" in that they're not ones that make you an "outlier" (/outlaw), around the same times of day every day and for randomized time intervals each. Kind of a vacation lamp timer, for watchful cyberspace eyes: "Nothing unusual to see here... move right along." Because going off the grid/tuning out will arouse suspicions in powerful entities, making them fear you're going to stop buying their brand/you've ceased to be on board with the approved societal pattern.
