I've Been Thinking:
Saudi Arabia has announced that they are instituting a smart chip for everyone joining the Hajj - the annual pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca.
Over 2.5 people, or pilgrims, travel to Mecca every year.
For many pilgrims, the chip will certainly be considered an invasion of their privacy. It will allow the organizers to monitor all movements of all participants. The chip can detect mass movements. It can rearrange and reorganize transportation.
The chip can and will also direct and redirect people and police to provide a more efficient movement.
It will also track where people are sleeping and what they are doing. Every person who enters will be tracked.
There is a positive side for the 2.5 million people who will now be tracked - the chip can help in health emergencies and get immediate aid to people in distress.
The Saudis know this chip works. They quietly tested it out this year and it was a great success.
