Great new advancements happen when pushed by circumstance. This was true when the masses wanted to read – we got the printing press. It happened when delivering goods by horse and wagon was considered slow and cumbersome – REO Speedwagon. And now the use of high tech listening devices, data mining, and communication interception will no doubt produce new technological wonders as well.
Expect breakthroughs in communications cloaking, circumvention spy craft, and all manner of dodging-the-man devices in the coming decade. But you may never hear of them, for the same reason we had not yet heard of the specifics surrounding the overwhelming collection of he said/she said haystacks ongoing by many governments, including the UK, France, the US and of course China.
Perhaps personal satellites will prevail. Or just cans and string. My gut feeling is that biochip implants will make ESP a reality. Welcome to the Age of Aquarius, baby!
