I had never heard of this technolgy until a little over a year ago. I've been doing a lot of reading, mainly in scientific journals and tech magazine sites. I don't understand a lot of the tech speak. I do better with journals like Scientific American (I've been a longtime reader). I follow news pretty closely and have never seen this discussed in a mainstream news media outlook. To me, this is shocking.......bobford
"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break in pieces."
Etienne de la Boëtie, 1553.

The U.S.'s National ID cards were hacked by German teenagers a year or so
ago. They are NOT secure AND all the info on them is being made available
to both the Canadian and Mexican governments. Now, I don't know about
security within the Canadian government but I know the Mexican government
makes Swiss cheese look solid!
I first posted notices about the RFIDs back in the early 90s when I was
working for the City of Santa Rosa. I worked in purchasing and they
previewed them for the city when they tried to sell a system for tracking
everything the city owned INCLUDING employee IDs. They had proto-types of
scanners that the cops could use by driving down a street looking for
chipped items that had "walked" out of the supply yard at the city. '92 or
might have been one year one way or the other. If they could do that then,
think how much better their scanning devices are now.
I have a friend whose husband works in hospitals. He has something to do
with IT but I'm not sure what but he travels around and fixes problems for
some of the major hospitals in the Northwest. A couple of years ago some of
the hospitals were setting up tracking devices for patients and were
implementing "tests" of chipping patients. You sure didn't see that make
the major media!
Orwell barely scratched the surface!
