I just joined the Borg

Oh, wow. I just joined or whatever its called. This is such lightyears from Dean's stuff that I feel like I've fallen down a wormhole and gone from Barrayar to Beta in one jump (in joke for Vorkosigan fans). I get the feeling that eventually the entire country will have joined and then what? I mean, when most voters feel they are actively engaged in a social network that calls on them to come out and do stuff how will we be able to tell the dancer from the dance? Are we going to become like that Borges story of the map makers whose maps became so detailed that they had to be drawn to the same scale as the surrounding terrain?
