Nanotech and Privacy

For years I have been wondering where all these rather odd concerns about nanotechnology having a negative impact on privacy were coming from, and now someone has owned up!
Of course the major impact is coming from the growing use of interlinked databases hooked up to a variety of number plate recognition, mobile phone and credit card systems which could in theory allow an unscrupulous government to monitor your every move. However, living in the UK with the governments rather poor record of major IT projects the major threat to privacy seems to come from governments officials losing and misplacing data.
