A shortage of energy resources could change the way we progress towards everyware days. If we shift to solar resources for instance, we might observe poor tag reading in extreme cold winters, or during rainy nights.
Or maybe simply tagging an individual directly would save on production costs and meet energy conservation needs?
If there is a huge energy shortage, would an energy provider choose to supply to a large database system, to keep the networks running, or would it rather supply energy for basic necessities like street lighting, home lighting and so on?
Blackouts might become a more common phenomenon, and people who were under the “Im being watched all the time” feeling might clamber to use blackouts for their privacy.
