Negative question Putting the question like that is asking for negative answers. It just points out to some delicate matters: - does one allow some organization to decide what is good or bad for the child? - tagging human people is generally recognized as 'big brother is watcing you' scenario's. So, having children my own, i would tend to say NO WAY! If school asks if it is alright to give my child a card with RFID, fi to control the costs of using internet and other stuff, or to prevent outsiders from accessing school, it would be the same question and my answer could be SURE, WHY NOT. This poll's results already proof how sensitive the subject is. It might damage business results when people in general start to 'connect' RFID and tagging to big brother scenario's. It is only to hope that the question was ment to stir up matters coz otherwise it is of no interest to promoting the usage of RFID's.
