A brief thought for a Friday
So, I was recently at a business meeting when the man next to me leaned over & confidentially whispered, "You smell really good." Now I'm a girl who does not mind a nice cake of soap, but I have to say this was a new one for me.
Naturally, it got me thinking about privacy, authentication and the very individualized Network of You's that comprise the information web. (I mean come on, what \*would\* a gal think?)
Let's think about a mythical nasal network. I decide to bathe today. I decide the various "lotions & potions" to apply. Perfumes & other specific nasal sensitive additives applied according to mood & circumstance. Now we add the genetic factor. Biometric markers in a whole new category. Mix well with whatever I've decided to eat or drink during the day & my general degree of health. Voila-- a nasal network of authentication is born-- or airborne as it were.
Original, unique, driven by circumstance and user choice...
Authentication at first sniff & very difficult to over preserve, reuse or fail to delete after an appropriate time passes...
Could be a little out there but, before spring pollen season gets into full swing, think about the Nasal Network. My your credit smells lovely. MMM you smell like someone who should have HR data. I can just smell it all now.
Just a wacky Friday thought
