RFID chips for migrant workers in the US?

Two more reasons to oppose this insane scheme: who really believed that NAIS would stop at tracking livestock? And note the admission by the good chairman, that his technology often fails and is prohibitively expensive.

VeriChip chairman Scott Silverman's appearance on American TV this week has raised fears of the introduction of RFID technology, but tracking tech 'not ready for prime time'.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
