Will be the same with brain implants: it's all fine and handy, but exporting data to exchange it or back it up is a case nobody will think of.
That would scare the sh*t out of me. What kind of backup would need to be taken? Full Backup? Incremental? Periodicity? What about if I die... Can my backup be used in someone else? Who can access my backups and discover all the bad things I've thought about, or can I have certain parts deleted?
Come to think of it, some individuals already can't function in daily life if their "smart"phone 's battery is low.
I see the value of "social" media but IMHO it rules the life of many and in many cases doesn't function as a time-saver anymore but is a time-gobbler.
I'ld like (in a way at least) to be able to say that I'm old enough that it won't affect my life anymore, but seeing how quickly everything changes I won't bet on that.
Having said this, just a couple of weeks ago I read a couple of articles by some thinktank group examining the (realistic) possibility of getting rid of physical cash altogether and a 10 year timeframe was mentioned.
The future looks bleak (to me).
