Submission + - [Ask Slashdot] Hiding in plain sight |Between extremes

V!NCENT writes: Is there a way to not hide on the web, while also not being able to be tracked automatically?

In other words; no cryptography, no Tor, etc., but also not leaving traces and keeping the possibility of being under surveillance, but only in such a way that basically only a human being from the government can do it as they wish?

It is not that I have something to hide, but in real life there shouldn't be a nanny, watching over your shoulder, writing down any move you make.

So Slashdot, is there a place, somehow, between these extremes? Or is there a way to engineer one? What does such 'luxury' take to achieve?

Submission + - Scientists replace a small piece of rat brain (smartplanet.com)

V!NCENT writes: We humans are melding with machines. This is not about using machines to amplify our knowledge (the Internet) but actually embedding chips within our bodies, to amplify our thoughts. The cochlear implant, used to augment hearing, is perhaps the best known brain-computer interface but the last decade has seen great leaps, translating even memories and thoughts into digital code. Now scientists out of Tel-Aviv University have managed to build an artificial cerebellum to restore brain function in injured rats.
