RFID: What sort of trouble does this technology enable?

What sort of trouble does this technology enable?

Technology can be a Good Thing but that doesn't mean we should fall over the bar-stool implementing new technology -- "just because it's there"

We need to ask the question: What sort of trouble does this new technology enable?" before we proceed.

Stop spamming for hits on your blog. If you want to post it in FR, put it in the right category: Blogs and Blogging.

Or I’ll dart you from a helicopter and implant an RFID in yer butt.

It’s already here and moving ahead. RFID doesn’t infringe upon personal freedoms, people do.

Sort of like that “guns don’t kill people...” argument.

I happen to believe both of them BTW...

I don’t find the right of the people to have RFID, or that the government has the power of RFID, in the Constitution.

the essay that I posted is NOT a Blog. it is a simple html page, nothing more. read it or not, as you wish

but I think we are looking at an important question here, that being that we need to consider what sort of trouble technology facilitates before we implement the use of that technology

as far as I know all ideas are welcome to be presented on Freep.

As a Senior .NET analyst with a major corporation, who has advanced skills in Web design, portals, webservices, and so on, I am here to tell you.....

.......Blogs are often coded in html.

True, but recently with computer technology we have run into trouble with mis-used technology

This post/thread is simply an invitation to everyone to reflect on this problem and to consider how best we might respond

First of all, a little vernacular training: You do not present on 'Freep', you present on 'Free Republic'. The word 'Freep' is a verb, indicating the concerted efforts of one to N 'Freepers' to alter the results of an online poll, instigate a letter- or emailing-campaign, or doing a physical protest at a particular location -- often in protest of an idea, person, or group of people.

Secondly, not all ideas are welcome here. Try advocating liberal ideas.

Third, conservative ideas are welcomed here, but proper etiquette dictates one must categorize them correctly.

Okay, that's fine. Did you categorize it correctly as an OpEd/Opinion piece?

Either way, I'm still darting you from a helicopter.

I need the target practice.

many boards have a few self-styled players who like to act as self-appointed editors.

we cannot allow that sort of thing to intimidate folks who may have good thoughts to share

In most instances you can't take Laz seriously. In those instances that you should, You probably should.

You be the judge.

If we police ourselves, we won’t need heavy-handed moderators to do so.
