Have you heard about the Chinese companies now monitoring their employees’ brain waves? The employees have to wear special helmets that record their brain waves to find out if they’re stressed, depressed, or having other issues while at work. I find this frightening, for something as intimate as one’s emotions to be displayed so publicly. I see the value this might have for companies but I’ve also been extremely stressed or angry while at my job and that didn’t stop me from doing my job well. Technology, as you said, can be helpful or intrusive depending on how well informed we are and what we allow. Thank you for sharing.
