How RFID Tags Could Be Used to Track Unsuspecting People
By Katherine Albrecht
While I agree with much of what Albrecht has to say, it's worth
knowing where she's apparently coming from:
Or perhaps it isn't.
As much as it might be titillating to focus on theatrical aspects of a
critic, that focus serves only to distract from the factual discussion.
If the critic raises valid concerns, it does not matter what they do
in the privacy of their home, their religion, or their head. What
matters is whether their concern is valid.
Would it be "worth knowing" that she's a member of the NRA, a member
of the Sierra Club, does beading, drives a hybrid, drives an SUV or
prefers pants rather than skirts? Does it alter the pragmatic aspects
of the concerns she is raising?
Then why is it "worth knowing" that she deems some things the work of
the devil, other than as theater?
