Not Far Enough Out On The Lunatic Fringe

Techdirt:Negroponte Not Far Enough Out On The Lunatic Fringe. Comment #1 is hilarious and right on the spot:
Can't find it online, but the current issue of Popular Science has pictures of a subdermal video display system, which looks like a moving tattoo. Will future Palm Pilots consist of scratching at moving tattoos with a razor-shaped stylus, to appeal to the self-injuring instincts of teens?

Of course, subdermal displays are not exactly a new idea. Bradbury wrote about them in the Illustrated Man published in 1951 with stories written in the 40's.
