A lot of people lately have been discussing RFID's and their use. I found this story, that predicts, that by 2015 this computer I am typing on ,will be obsolete instead, we will be using smart dust.


In 2015: sensors everywhere, computers invisible


"Gartner analysts predicted that by 2015, passive tags would begin to inhabit every non-trivial object, and every thing could be identifiable and located. Active, intelligent wireless networking and sensing devices will cost less than 50 cents. The sensors would run low power CPUs, have wireless and sensor chips, ad hoc networking algorithms, and gain power from the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition, the majority of computers will be invisible and disposable."

That is interesting NS.
Here's another interesting story on RFID implants.
(or should I say scary story?)
Looks like old DHHS is starting a pilot program in
some cities to plant RFID chips in homeless people
so social workers and police can track them.
It's part of their progaram to "END HOMELESSNESS
BY 2005".
First pets, now the homeless. WE Can't be far behind!!

end homelessness ala soylent green, i'm guessin'.
it's so #ing stupid! tracking the homeless won't end homelessness. it will treat the destitute and the insane as criminals. welcome to the new world order. the bastards.
don't anybody try and tell me it's good for the whole, either. it dehumanizes us ALL.
smart dust. just what we need. #.

The story on RFIDing the homeless is an April Fools joke story. Not real. [Edited on 2-4-2004 by SkepticOverlord]

oh. my rage is still real, though. the way some people talk about homelessness, you would think they are talking about garbage collection. it makes my blood boil.
for an april fool's joke it is not very funny. way too plausible.
