I debated with myself whether I should put this post in this forum or in the sci-tech forum, but I think it belongs here.
The article discusses RFIDs that have been used in various pilot projects, involving toys, computer games, and educational programs, and it is fairly
straightforward, so I refer you to it above.
What I want to discuss is whether people think this is a means of getting people used to the idea of RFIDs in everyday life. A lot of people believe
that RFID will eventually become the 'mark of the beast', or help lead to NWO government or a 1984-like society.

as children now see computers as 'normal', while many of their grandparents still view computers with suspicion. Do you think this is part of a
planned effort to desensitize the next generation to RFIDs? Do you think, if not a planned effort, that it might inadvertently lead to the same
result? Do you think the people behind this technology have any ulterior motives? (Do you think I'm full of crap just for thinking about this
Yeah, well, enough of me. What have you all got to say on the matter?
