Designers and futurists alike have promised a simpler way of interacting with the communities we live in. They have predicted the use of cellphones to take the place of movie tickets and credit cards; I've even heard mention of devices that will be implanted under our skin that act as our identification. Washington DC has moved a step closer, albeit a much more conservation step by starting a One Card ID Program. The photo ID will serve as a city resident's ID card, as well as, "an access card to public services of all kinds, including public libraries, parks, pools, and even student IDs." Some residents are less than enthusiastic about the different service departments having access to their "privacy".
