Body Hacking

QOTD, Mark Atwood on body hacking:

Body hacking sounds like a neat idea. But I would really like to have revision control.

Meuon and I used to muse about a DB-9 jack in the back of our necks, that became an ethernet jack, and that, of course, brought up the question of what the upgrade path looked like...

You actually have redundant array of optical interfaces on the front of your head. This array is capable of dropping the redundancy to extract additional information (depth).

The bandwidth of this interface is pretty high. Unfortunately, the protocol normally used to convey information across it (written text). Graphic imagery is more efficient (1000x - one picture = one kiloword) but the indexing routines in the brain don't necessarily operate the same way from system to system (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).

Probably the greatest inefficiency of this interface is in the latency. Typing, speech and handwriting recognition are all much slower (it's taken me about three minutes to write this small amount of text - where as it only took a couple seconds for me to read the post and think of this idea).
