“Given the rapid ascendance of the locavore movement, my prediction is that by 2040, we will follow our favorite cows, getting regular updates on the quality of their milk, sent wirelessly to our embedded Google++ chip.”

It will apparently : "allow the farmer to regain intimacy with his cows, and allow anyone at all to learn more about where their milk comes from."

Problem is, it suggests an equal fate and lives between humans and animals under the oppressing hands of technology… and I think while there's some similarity, the differences are much much greater.
There's a part about it in the FAQ -it's in Social revolutions are possible. Don’t you believe a revolution in the way society seize nonhuman animals is possible?  Not exactly about technology mastery or the state of humans and non-humans in the modern world, but about the repeatedly used false comparison between human slaves and animals salves. Anyway the conclusion is the same, it's just incomparable.
