Thinkster: The Future Of Social Media
Be Careful What You Think

Byteing_Words_Thinkster-Future-Social-MediaBy having a tiny neuro-transmitter implanted into your prefrontal cortex, virtually every thought you have will be instantly uploaded to your Thinkster page. These thoughts are well-protected and will only be shared with your private Thinkster friends and, of course, the FBI, CIA, NSA, ATF and several thousand Homeland Security agents.

However, if you have no coherent thoughts for more than eight waking hours, the system will assume you’ve gone braindead and transmit a high-voltage spike to reboot your brain. Unfortunately, it will also wipe out your entire memory and require you to restart your life from ground zero. This includes potty training so you should probably start carrying an extra pair of underwear when you sign up.

 (Note: It turns out that the idea of Thinkster is not that fanciful. Researchers at the National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnologies have developed a system whereby a brain-computer interface was able to decipher selected thoughts of test subjects and translate the output to text. So in the future, you will not only have to be careful of what you say, but also of what you think.)
