Post-9/11 security fears usher in subdermal chips ?

A sophisticated miniaturized tracking device intended for subdermal implantation in large numbers of human beings--'the manu- facturer, Applied Digital Solutions,took cover. Under criticism by privacy advocates, as welt as Christians con- cerned over the biblically prophesied "mark of the beast," the Nasdaq-traded company removed all references to human implantation from its website. Its CEO claimed publicly that there were "no plans" to make the technology implantable, but rather for the user to "wear" the device outside his body, say, on a wristwatch.
Then came Sept. 11, and the resulting urgent national drive to increase America's homeland security. And in this new climate of fea1j in which many Americans are susceptible to valuing safety over freedom, security over priva- cy, the company has found its golden opportunity to re-introduce the subder- mal microchip implant it had previous- ly deemed too hot for the American pub- lic to handle.
