Emergent tech

Since I started reading Vernor Vinge's A Deepness in the Sky, this is the second news story I've seen about the development of technology similar to that in the book: Smarter Soccer Through Chips describes something like the Locators, but presumably without the secret features. :) The story's awfully short on technical details, but it sounds like a network of remote (GPS?) locators. The first news story I noticed was Turning Slackers Into Workaholics, about a Focus-like gene treatment. No, they aren't exact analogues, but their descendents may be.
