Bring on the Cyborgs

9:30 AM -- Apologies for blogging something relevant to our industry, but this story from today's Financial Times made our short-hairs rise:

    An Ohio company has embedded silicon chips in two of its employees - the first known case in which US workers have been “tagged” electronically as a way of identifying them.

    CityWatcher.com, a private video surveillance company, said it was testing the technology as a way of controlling access to a room where it holds security video footage for government agencies and the police...

    “There’s nothing pulsing or sending out a signal,” said
    [company CEO Sean] Darks, who has had a chip in his own arm. “It’s not a GPS chip. My wife can’t tell where I am.”
Thanks for the reassurance, Mr. Darks, but your marital difficulties are your own bidness.

As for the rest of us... Does anyone else find this nightmarish? Or are you too anesthetized for nightmares?

OK. Point taken. It wasn't all good.
