How can you tweet your death if you must push a button first to show your lack of heartbeat?

My Death..will not be televised.

 Howver, it will be Tweeted.

Eventually, we shall tweet from beyond the grave, sweet.

i dont think it should be used as death announcement, but perhaps as an indicator to medical personel that there's an emergency and maybe there's no way for anyone else to call 911.

Another wonderful accomplishment of Twitter - letting people know that you are, in fact, still alive. Unfortunately.

If you have not seen it on TV yesterday, go to: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/60_minutes/video/video.php

Watch the middle part of the 06.28.09 issue about the newest neuroscience innovation (kind of "Your mind belongs to us")

It does not call for much imagination to see where it is all going. If you think you are connected today, it is nothing compared to what is in the pipe. In the early eighties my friends were looking strangely at me when I was telling them that in the not so far future they will all use computers.

SF authors like William Gibson, Alastair Reynolds, Charles Ross are going to look passé sooner than we think.

Yes there will be wonderful applications like 24x7x365 automatic nursing. Yes there will be much more nefarious applications (...and the general asked: "how about the physical and psychological status of the troops, do we need to boost the endorphins?"). But here is my personl prediction: the baby-boomers invented the personal computer and the internet, I do not think anybody foresaw what their (grand)-sons and daugthers would do with it (Naspter, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter,...). The next generation will probably do some even crazier things with the technology being invented now. Telepathic twittering anybody?
