From the "Big Brother Is Watching" Dept.

A company in Ohio,, a provider of security cameras and Internet digital video storage, has reportedly taken RFID – radio frequency identification, those little tags on CD’s and DVD’s that make us so crazy at WallyWorld – to the next level by implanting a couple of employees with the chips for the purpose of access control.

I don’t really mind micro-chipping our Labrador so we can get her back if she strays, but y’all AIN’T gonna microchip me. Especially not for work purposes. Those things are too easy to trace.

Plus, of course, I remember Michael Crichton’s novel, The Terminal Man.
