Somewhere amidst the cauldrons of PNG's socio-political disturbances must lie an understanding of, and a will to pursue prospects of connectivity between citizens and government at levels of technocratic capability not yet realised.
In other countries, presently, efforts to engage populations at a digital level where commerce and banking are conducted online are proceeding apace.
Control-wise, this supposes everybody to possess a bank account, and to transparently interact with Government agencies and employers etc.

Undoubtedly, all of us are becoming aware of the global web entangling us with increasing dependence upon cyber-facilities like computers and mobile phones. Soon, without those aids, lifestyle and survivability will become problematic, to say the least.

Many in Australia are disillusioned with the mammoth cost overruns with NBN's rollout, and its relatively poor efficiency. A recent article on Generation 5 Wireless capability revealed potential efficiency gains yielding Gigabytes of data handling versus the lauded NBN delivery of little more than current ADSL2+ speeds.

It would not surprise me to see PNG developing such levels of management abilities and techniques as would be required in a New World Order magnitude of governance. I reckon they'll all be talking about it at the upcoming forum held in that inordinately expensive Ela Beach clubhouse.

Don't do as I do, do as I say.

George Orwell foresaw it all over 70 years ago. Big Brother has arrived and is taking over.

One fellow commented on the ESP Forum.. As the system gets smarter at the auspices of some smart cookies so as those enemies of the system. One being, how will the registered be deregistered when they are dead and gone? It complicates further when the sim gets sold to a stranger. To begin with, how much confident are we with the data authenticity now in the system, given the rush with agents? I can grab a sim tomorrow, which I will not do in real sense, and register it with made-up data, how good is that? Their own evil intentions will bewitch them. #welcome_to_the_cyberworld.

Smartphones with fingerprint security recognition and iridological identification are not merely marketing gimmicks.

Phil, it is common that most illnesses before evolving show symptoms. The SIM card mystery is nothing but a sign of what the civilised world frames as 'media control'.

The next thing for us to expect is massive limited media freedom. Am I right or guessing?
