To don a WearComp is to seize complete and absolute authority and control over our own digital space. A WearComp acts not only as a constant point of contact with cyberspace, but also as a constant filter to cyberspace. We can literally decide what we want to see and don't want to see. This doesn't seem to be the Orwellian/Borglike society some people fear; rather, individuals are empowered to take control over their digitial surroundings, and take control of their communications with others.
People are also concerned about industrial use WearComps in offices/factories turning people into cyborg slaves. Again, we think the central theme of personal empowerment deals well with this concern. When WearComps are worn 24/7, they really do become an extension of our mind and body. Using such things in commerce to control people would be like demanding that employees install a third arm, controlled by the company, in their chests. Who would permit such a thing? Who would dare ask? As long as users have complete autonomy over their bodies and their WearComps, then we don't think this is a problem either.
Complete autonomy is, however, a strong condition. In particular, it requires us to be free to understand and manipulate our WearComps however we choose; see Why should WearComps run Linux?
