Volunteering to be monitored?

Well, according to this article on the International Herald Tribune, folks in London maybe doing just that. There’s a company that’s offering a cell-phone based tracking service in Britain. In theory, it’s meant to track kids and such, but I can see how this kind of thing might get misused. For instance, employers tracking employees. I know that several of my former employers would have liked to know where I was 24/7!
In any case, I can see the value of this kind of service, but I can see how it could be perverted, too.
How would you imagine this service being used in the future? No, wait, go write it!
