Truly Shielded? && Internet Accessible? in the same sentence !?!?
I have doubts about any such scheme on the face of it.
Admission of a web interface also admits to an opening in the armour for such a site.
Currently I am writing my own online WebApp that will need to scale to an equivalent size or larger
and I am putting security of users in as a first priority.
any such records on-site I would require to have some kind of 2nd-teir cypher key unlocked
BEFORE any record information is even viewable by the browser over an SSL link
Call me paranoid but this appears to be similar to giving every person a number
and forcing it upon the general public by use of the children who will not know differently
*How young is too young!?!?*... I dont mind *localized* Identification, but country-wide?
Any scheme like this that is enforced is just the first of the final bricks in the wall for the entire
1984 style doublethink.
I also see targetting of such Identification material towards children as pushing the agenda
of the agency/persons who are insistent on its introduction and eroding any value of
free-speech and freedom(AKA civil liberties).
I dont know that much about history or material outside my chosen field of computers,
but this type of information gathering just sends chills up and down my spine.
1984 / V for Vendetta / The Matrix - no longer movies but made real in another form?
"Hontoni kowaii" as the Japanese would say ( Literal : Truly scary ),
Kawaii may be cute, but Kowaii is definitely another matter entirely.
Kawaii for some of the kids when they are showing pride in good work,
Kowaii at the Big Brother Tracking of their lives.
