Mark Harrison points to some MS products with fingerprint readers. that is cool for authentication purposes ... but another problem to be solved is how to de-authenticate. i.e. prove that i am not somebody. this would solve the sort of problems where we have authors doing their own anonymous book reviews on amazon. e.g. the error message would be, you cannot review this book because you authored it. its too easy to get around it now. either be anonymous; or if authentication is required, create a 2nd alias to authenticate as. the figerprint biometric does not solve this either because i could just use a different finger. maybe a DNA keyboard would do it? its only a matter of time until DNA will be signed by a certificate authority ...
