Just implant the chip in my head now and be done with it

Scott is right - you just can't make this stuff up. Rep. Larry Phillips has proposed HB2893, which would put RFID tags in vehicle registration stickers. I can think of many reasons why this is a bad idea, but you should read Scott's post to get the full flavor of this one.

I don't know about y'all, but where I grew up folks tagged cattle, not each other. It's none of the government's business where you go unless they have probable cause to believe you did something wrong. We have a freedom to travel and, at least until recently, what was once quaintly known as a "reasonable expectation of privacy."

RFID doesn't work. All the IT magazines are on this.

"So, you've been tasked to implement RFID, the bad news is it doesn't work. Read on for your next steps..."

Did you see the story about RFID for library books in the Statesman. Some day Homeland Security can just drive by yor house and see what you're reading....

RFID doesn't work? Interesting. IEEE Spectrum hasn't picked up on the issue, or at least hasn't done so yet. Have any details on what the problems are and how likely they are to be resolved?
