Auros Face from wedding

Paranoid rantings or serious concern? You decide!

Big Brother Comes to Wal-Mart.

I actually have always wanted tracking chips for my possessions, so if I lose them, I can go to my computer and send a query: "Where're my keys?!"

But I would want the chips to be set up with some kind of security (maybe sign the query with your private key?), so they could hear the query over the wireless LAN, cell network, or whatever other infrastructure was being used; but would not provide a location to anyone but me.

In any case, I'll be sending a fax to my Senators and reps about this tonight...
