The Dwarf Lords: tiny devices, tiny minds and the new enslavement

Abstract:
But these contemporary intrusions are nothing compared to the power which quantum computing and nanobots will shortly unleash to monitor and record each individual in an advanced society, almost every minute of their lives.

Here I refer not merely to the lightning speed, ultra-potent analytical powers and ubiquity of these emergent devices but, above all, to their phenomenal data-storage capacity. Fragments of information will be stored as atoms or even subatomic particles in an atomic lattice - the entire National Library in a matchbox.

For the first time in history it will be possible to observe any individual, cradle to grave - and even, via genetics, beyond the grave and before the womb - and file the results.
