President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said, according to CBS News TechTalk.


"[U.S. Gov't is] enhancing online security and privacy and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities."

Good thing that only one in twenty internet users is of that nationality.

Obama? Isn't he the silly bunt that told the US Americans to stop using so many IPs because he was running out them?

My my my.

Japanese children blow IPV6 kisses your way mr. smart guy.

oh god, this makes me sick.  I guess we've got to keep up with the Chinese.

What if I want to opt out of an id?

Does that classify me as a terrorist?

You can opt out at the airport but look how that ends up.

Oh yes, you can always "opt out", since America is a free country.  They will provide you with the "freedom" option.  At the airports, the "freedom option" is to not fly or get physically molested.  So with the internet, there will be the "freedom" option of not using the internet, or maybe you will be able to go to the public library computers and have everything you type logged.
