Brain Implants Zogby Poll 2010 (SF Chronicle 30/5/10)
Brain implants: Twenty-five years after the first Internet domain name was registered, 1 in 10 Americans under 50 would like to turn themselves into Chuck (from the same-named NBC series) by implanting the Internet into their brains, if that were possible.
Similarly, one-third of Americans would download memories from their brains if they could, and the percentage increases to more than half for 18- to 29-year-olds. Also, 1 in 4 has been caught cheating, or knows of someone who has been caught, because of an online social network.
Those are some of the results of a poll released by VeriSign Inc. and conducted by Zogby International. It measured the Internet’s impact on relationships, culture and general tech knowledge. Zogby surveyed 3,233 people from April 30 to May 3 and from May 14 to May 17.
