You are about to unlock your cart to drive to work, or your date, or that soccer game that you need to play and you find out your car is gone, stolen.
The solution is there. A GPS-tracker, if installed before the car gets stolen, can track down the location of your car until several meters precise within one minute. There are several versions of these car-trackers already. For example, the GPRS-Autotracker – sim-card is included in these trackers, which means that you can call the tracker directly to find out the coordinates of the location of your car.
There are cars that have trackers built in when you buy them. You can also install them yourself or get it done at a garage. Some insurance companies even require you to have a tracker because it saves them a lot of money.
A relatively exclusive version of the tracker is Trackstar. This version does not only track your vehicle and contacts the police, if the vehicle is moved illegally without the use of its keys, the unit will notify the Trafficmaster and they will contact the owner immediately.
This is a product (Sterling) with the potential of a Spime (Sterling). Imagine that the Trackstar “pinpoints the locations of a stolen vehicle every 20 seconds.” When technology like this gets developed further, and more widely used (not only for cars) we will have immediate access to information about where anything is at any time. The “informational support” will be “overwhelmingly extensive and rich” (Sterling).
I am really glad you showed us the videos and told us about what is going on in America. I was sincerely touched by the videos, at some points I literally had goosebumps. I think it’s an incredible, powerful, and beautiful thing that is happening over there right now. I’ve studied in America for the past two years, so I’ve experienced how things are over there. I was amazed by the naivety of the people – how badly they wanted to believe in that American dream, and therefore simply didn’t face the reality of what was going on. Maybe not even consciously, but because they were blinded by that image of the American Dream that everyone keeps talking about. Of course there were Americans who saw this differently, especially the ones who had been abroad and saw themselves that there is more than just America. Also, I experienced that throughout my time there it seemed like more and more people started to face the real situation of America, and I’m so happy and touched to see that now they put their fears aside and face that the American dream is not what they’ve been told, that equality is very far from what their society currently is, and that things need to change. I think it is amazing that so many scared people ignore the fears they have, get out, put their hands together, and demand change.
I do think that another world is possible. Normally I think I would have said maybe not within a few weeks or even several days, but the fact that these people put their hands together, stay away from violence, and just stand up for their needs changes things. I think for America, right now, another world is very, very close. If it will actually be there, we’ll find out soon, but if these people keep it up the same way they do right now, I think things will change, soon.
