    What would be REALLY cool would be if, when I am somewhere and looking at something or someone, I could create a "virtual Post-It Note" for my own use or for general viewing.

    Wow, the AR technology described in today's show sounds so powerful. It also sounds potentially dangerous in the hands of those with ill intent. What would happen if a future terrorist accessed the architectual layout of a building simply by pointing a camera at the building? This is really science fictionish, but how private would our lives be if some sort of facial recognition program were tied to this? Could it be possible for a stranger to access private information on a person, simply by pointing a camera at them? Cool technology, but what safety features would be in place?

    All this technology is enlightening computor wizards but you may need to contribute a % of your net genius to support mental wellness and school guidence counselors with all the cyber bully invasion of privacy going on resulting in sucide with young people. Budget cuts hampering counselors from spending time with students ? Comprehensive development guidence models designed to maximize counseling services.What are the early warning signs of an individual prior to them jumping off a bridge or a 5-9 Jr.High student killing themselves over what ? A bully on the innernet ? You don't kill yourself in the face of difficulties and you get a lawyer and sue for invasion of privacy and go ask the school counselors what they need to be more effective. Be a technology wizard helper in your community for a young person. Behavior modification Innernet to maximize school counseling services and ethical responsibility. Check the little ones IEP Mr. Cooper and look for a teacher's comments of concern early on. Had prevention been there at home and school would the child's life or young adult ended in suicide over technology and a cyber bully ? What's that old song ?" Wooley Bully " ? Go pitch in to help school counselors technology wizards ! Ethics on the innernet reinforcement changes behavior with politicians included and that goes for their crazy lying campaign attack ad's too.
