    ‘Human barcode’ could make society more organized, but invades privacy, civil liberties

    Would you barcode your baby?

    Microchip implants have become standard practice for our pets, but have been a tougher sell when it comes to the idea of putting them in people.

    Science fiction author Elizabeth Moon last week rekindled the debate on whether it's a good idea to "barcode" infants at birth in an interview on a BBC radio program.

    “I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached — a barcode if you will — an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals,” she said on The Forum, a weekly show that features "a global thinking" discussing a "radical, inspiring or controversial idea" for 60 seconds .

    Moon believes the tools most commonly used for surveillance and identification — like video cameras and DNA testing — are slow, costly and often ineffective.

    But there are also concerns about security breaches by hackers. If computers and social networks are already vulnerable to hacking and identify theft, imagine if someone could get access to your personal ID chip?

    No I wouldn' want to be ID like this nor my children but who to say at birth they want put this chip on your child without you having any
    awareness to it, then how great would it be to help track missing children or people who are taken his device could track'em
    but again the flag goes up to privacy

    Another way to control society !!

    I'm half heartly agreeing with $$RICH$$. i think its good for the sake of the missing children, finding bad people and whateva the other reasons for it. Then here comes the hackers, lost privacy and every CIA in your love life.

    But then i'm thinking,...will this be a way to get food, necessities for our families and medical for our health? Theres more info we need to know bout before some of us's decide to accept this offer.

    When we say "... more organized", more organized for whom and for what purpose?

    Cui bono?
