One small but interesting entry on the Il Piccolo web-site today. Here's a copy.
Migliaia di persone in Svezia con un chip sottopelle al posto della carta d'identità.
Thousands of persons in Sweden with a chip under their skin in place of the identity card.
(Already they are on their way to a cashless society using only cards instead).
It simply had to happen and Sweden apparently, and as usual, showing the way. I have for a long time been saying to friends that in 30 years time, maybe even sooner, all new-born babies will be fitted with a micro-chip showing their identity, blood group, DNA and other pertinent information. Watch this space!
