It gives you a very narrow but data driven view of what is important to the character based on what they say. Using this we can see how Jack truly is the leader of the island based on how he spreads his concern around. Kate really does think more about Jack than Sawyer.
And Hurley says dude a lot.

As we get more and more geolocated data out into the cloud we start being able some really interesting things with it. I think I'm coming down on the side of panopticists (is that a word) that as long as everyone has access to this technology it is a force for good.

Hey look everyone I know who I can't see but can hear the thoughts I project into the void! I can do amazing things with this collection of ones and zeros that those geniuses down the road put together, FOR FREE!
It helps me feel included even though I don't get to go out much because I'm a single parent, it let's me learn new ways to do things because I shout into the clouds and I get answers!
