Do industry leaders have any concerns about being associated with those tangents?
How would those questions affect the board’s credibility? We could chose not to answer them, but I feel, as the editor, that it is our job to respond to our readers, whatever their concerns may be, or however unfounded their fears. The fact that some people worry that they have been implanted with an RFID chip is simply because radio frequency identification is relatively new and unknown, and thus plays into paranoia. If anything, I think the number of questions regarding implants shows that some media outlets have hyped up fears against the technology.
As for your second question, the answer is no. RFID systems being sold to companies to help them track and manage their goods has nothing to do with RFID implants.
