Via Kim Cameron: Companies are injecting employees with RFID chips.

My pet theory is that efforts to use technology to nail down identities are the more hackable, the more confidence authorities place in them. It's a corollary to Edward Luttwak's thesis in Strategy: The Logic of War and Peace, summarized in one review as
The crucial question to be asked of any new tactic, strategy, or technology is not: “how will this affect battle?” but “how will the enemy react?”
