Last month, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed a bill that would protect people’s privacy when it comes to brainwaves, causing us to breathe a sigh of relief knowing that nobody will be able to hack into the fucked up search history that we regard as our own thoughts and thought processes.

The law basically changed the Colorado Privacy Act to include neural data, or data that’s found in your brain. Now, your dome data is in the same category as your fingerprints and facial recognition software.

This change makes Colorado the first state to create contingencies for protecting neural data, though many other countries and states are working to amend their constitutions to prevent the dystopian future where your average Joe could purchase our weekly night terrors via the app store.

It’s a damn good thing, too. If the average American could buy our neural data and be exposed to what goes through our head on a daily basis, we’d have a mob outside of our house waiting to beat us to death with their shoes.
