Ben comments on RFID chips and the threat to privacy based on a great Register article on the subject. My take on this: yes, there could be repercussions of embedded “where are you” devices everywhere. However, until they know who I am rather than just that I am, then we’re probably OK. On a related note, CCTV was supposed to be a privacy invader when it was rolled out nationwide, and I don’t see many people complaining now. Update: more links on RFID.
