ID Database as Population Register

ID database will become national population register silicon.com. This story is proof once again that once a database is established, it will be shared, multipurposed and merged with others. The British "Identity & Passport Service" will supplant the "Office for National Statistics" on the "Citizen Information Project" database to become the "National Identity Register" in the UK.

A database is a database is a database. So why have overlapping and redundant data stores when you can merge them all and combine all those bits into a single monolithic information source with all possible data about every citizen stored and shared with every agency, bureau, commission, administration and organization, public and private, profit and non-profit?
