what do you think about people bing chipped?

New Zealand made it law to chip ALL dogs the day the USA introduced law to chip humans.

Here are some interesting articles.

Today, you can microchip your pet. Tomorrow, the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) hopes you'll use similar technology in work to track your laptop, important documents, or cash moving from your vault to another bank.

The microchips have already been implanted in 1 million pets. But the chip’s possible dual use for tracking people’s movements — as well as speeding delivery of their medical information to emergency rooms — has raised alarm.

“If privacy protections aren’t built in at the outset, there could be harmful consequences for patients,” said Emily Stewart, a policy analyst at the Health Privacy Project.

The chip is woven into school jumpers and includes information on the pupil’s identity, photographs and other details including whether they misbehaved in their last lesson.
These details can then be accessed by teachers through a laptop or handheld computer.

WASHINGTON (Map, News) - A microchip company with powerful political connections is lobbying the Pentagon for the right to implant chips under the skins of the nearly 1.4 million U.S. military personnel.

VeriChip Corp., which is based in Florida and planning to offer its stock to the public soon, has been one of the most aggressive marketers of radio frequency identification chips. Company officials have touted the chips as versatile, able to be used in a variety of situations such as helping track illegal immigrants or giving doctors immediate access to patient’s medical records.

Now the company is “in discussions” with the Pentagon, spokeswoman Nicole Philbin said. She added that VeriChip wants to insert the chips under the skin of the right arms of U.S. servicemen and servicewomen. The idea is to be able to scan an arm and obtain that person’s identity and medical history.

“The potential for this technology doesn’t just stop at the civilian level,” Philbin said.

Surveillance company implants RFID chips in workers

Sure, implanting an RFID chip in your workers might incite privacy concerns, be a tad creepy, and signal the end of days, but we can't help but raise the awesome flag for CityWatcher.com and their efforts to borgify the workplace. Apparently they have planted chips in the upper right arms of two employees assigned to the secure vault which holds the security footage captured by the company, and while it seems like a bit of a PR stunt more than a security measure, the RFID chips are required to access the room, so at least they're not kidding around.

I'd be opposed on general principal but this is paranoid fear mongering bullshit. There's no such legislation in the US. The two articles from the US are nearly three years old, one involved all of two people for fucks sake.

Yet another example of New Zealand leftism, equating Americans with dogs.

That's a funny remark.

BTW, NZ is often a place for experiments.
