More on Implant Chips for Employees

The Chicago Tribune has picked up the story regarding security chips being implanted in employees' bodies. From the story:

That Orwellian-sounding idea [of chip implants] is exactly what an Ohio security firm's boss has done with two of his workers and himself."We wanted a way to say, `Hey, we are a little different in the way we take our security,'" explained Sean Darks, chief executive of CityWatcher.com in Cincinnati, who also is carrying a chip. "I wouldn't have my employees do something, if I didn't do it myself," he added.

His glee is not shared by workplace and privacy experts, who shudder at the idea that corporate America might decide to brand employees with the technology, known as radio frequency identification.
