    RTPI is part of Product Risk Analysis?I mean is it possible to monitor risk of a shift to lower trend productivity growth?

    Altho I more or less like the idea (have some different ideas for the architecture) the biggest challenge is to find a VC and to decide how we are gonna sell the product in large numbers, to build a sustainable business. Lets meetup to talk about this.
    Keep the ideas rolling :)

    I just came across something incredible and I thought it would be appropriate to share it here.

    “The Times has seen a patent application filed by the company (Microsoft) for a computer system that links workers to their computers via wireless sensors that measure their metabolism. The system would allow managers to monitor employees’ performance by measuring their heart rate, body temperature, movement, facial expression and blood pressure. Unions said they fear that employees could be dismissed on the basis of a computer’s assessment of their physiological state. ”
