It’s a small world after all:
The MyMagic+ “vacation management system” can track guests as they move throughout Walt Disney World and analyze their buying habits. If parents allow certain settings on the Magic Bands, employees playing characters will be able to see data with the use of hidden sensors —- so a child might walk up to Mickey Mouse, who says, “Hi, Bobby! Happy birthday!” Some rides will be designed so that there’s interaction between the machines and people with Magic Bands in waiting areas, thus keeping guests entertained as they wait in line.
Here’s to hoping that privacy activists will shift from NSA to corporate tracking in 2014 — an unregulated, unaccountable and warrant-free surveillance state. By the way, I wonder how many corporate trackers will be on Greenwald’s new “First Look Media” website?
