Imagine the fun at the firehouse when these things become commonplace. Give it a decade or two. Also interesting in Sunday's New York Times is the subject of genetics and obesity. Imagine a future where, say, genetic testing for obesity markers (or heart disease or...) is part of the hiring process. Finally, for us geeks, there's this great quote from a book review by Dave Barry: "I do almost all of my communicating by e-mail. Iíve been known to e-mail people who were literally standing next to me, which I know sounds crazy, because at that distance I could easily call them on my cellphone. But I prefer e-mail, because itís such an effective way of getting information to somebody without running the risk of becoming involved in human conversation." Who needs Nextel when you can e-mail someone on the other side of the station? Ha ha.

Remember personal info?
