Back in the dark days, before technology ruled all, the allergic and otherwise at risk got creative in protecting themselves. Medical ID bracelets managed to look good and creatively explain to paramedics and other concerned folks that a severe bee allergy was likely the reason a person was rolling on the ground and frothing at the mouth.
Today we can fit infinitely more information onto the tiniest of spaces but only seem to take advantage of the technology to share music and transport files for work. Think of the infinite number of emergencies that could be adverted with an emergency drive carried in a safe place. Stolen passport? Medical emergency? Good news: you backed all that information up and its hanging from a small jump drive around your neck.
The process is simple. Pick the right drive. Upload the appropriate files and label clearly. Use an encryption software to protect non-medical info such as bank account and passport info. Mark the drive with the red cross. Wear it.
Big respect to Gizmodo for this idea.

Just when you thought it was safe to tweet about BBQ pork ribs, a recent trip to Bali or how bitchy flight attendants need to enroll in an ettiqutte class, think again! The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is digging its heels in for more “signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S.” This time they are monitoring keywords on social media. Big Brother is watching even closer! Happy Memorial Day!
