    Frankly, you have no idea what I am envisioning, unless you have learned to read minds, which I doubt.

    The thing I don't like is the treatment of humans like cattle or herds. And a chip could hold all your records, including medical, financial, education/employment, criminal etc.
    It could sure help nailing a corrupt member of the administration or proving you were someplace, where the murder wasn't done.

    But it will take very close monitoring of and reliable enforcement against misuse.

    Yeah! We'll start by putting microchips in them.

    I'm more annoyed by how someone like Google tracks your buying habits to encourage more sales. I looked up a laptop the other day, just to see what's available and the cost, if my PC died. All of a sudden every page I pull up has laptops being advertised on them. I don't want Google to cram their crap down my throat, like I'm a sheep.

    People don't know that the NSA can change bank account amounts. I don't trust the NSA, DARPA and Google with my ID and personal info but it's too late. They'll figure a way to tag us without our knowledge, eventually.
    Look what up? I do work in autonomy; you end up having to be pretty decent at back of the enveloping algorithm performance. Call those educated guesses.

    There is certainly a case to be made for how to safeguard data. But the bigger issue is what's done to it. Is it bad if companies follow your clicks to target ads which you may want? Would we rather pay for all of the free stuff on the internet, or would we rather look at ads? It's a tough call.

    If they want the job, they get the chip?

    Yes. And we the people get a remote control that let's we the people zap them with an electric shock every time they piss us off. Some kind of system like that.

    I saw a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as an overseas CIA spook, killing terrorists, and the NSA assisted him with satellite imagery that could physically identify the suspects from space and help him track them in the streets. They used the same ID ability to send in drones for kill shots on the Taliban. The level of tech being used to follow people is unbelievable.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they could laser your ass from space soon. There are cameras at every traffic light and store, and records of all your public transactions. Is it a bad thing in itself, not yet that we're aware.

    An ex DARPA director and Google exec want to start putting implants into people, good idea? You might not be able to draw money or grocery shop without authentication and identification.

    I think we all could see this coming with technology and gov't control increasing. Is it time to Microchip the human race? Though, I can already see the hackers finding ways of changing the identities. Where there's a lock, there's always a thief.
    They are not pushing 'microchipping' human beings. This was a tech talk where they discussed the advantages of various implantable technologies. This has been experimented with for years. The merging of technology and biology is an inevitable and exciting trend. It will become ubiquitous as soon as it affords enough utility to become broadly popular.

    I didn't write the article, so I can't control the title.

    I know technology and biology is merging in medicine. My mom before she passed had an implantable pacemaker/defibrillator that wirelessly sent her heart info thru a modem, when she slept, to the device's makers.

    Not easily. It takes too much energy to drill through the atmosphere. You'd have to gather that in with solar and store it in batteries. It's not a very practical way of getting rid of someone.

    The surveillance stuff can be bad, but it doesn't have to be. There's always a tradeoff.
