No thanks

I think we have enough technology now to be honest

... and a great tool to monitor your travels, who you talk to, what organizations you belong to, which TV shows you watch, who you are dating, etc..

Your smart phone already does all that. This is better. For example it can monitor changes in your heartbeat and stress levels. That way, when you are required to say "I love Big Brother" it can tell whether you really believe what you are saying or are just lying and in need of reeducation.

All these new technologies and virtually no enforced laws nor customs (or even concern among many) regarding the protection of personal data... these will be the golden years for authoritarian governments.

No thanks, my body wasn't born to be a Borg.

This seems to be far from being able to be used practically, which is fortunate because it would also need to be secured very strongly since any technology able to collect so much information would easily become a huge risk if someone with less than positive intention can get a hold of it. Even with the limited capabilities of the current portable devices it is still a big privacy problem, imagine what could happen if the technology described was common.
