Sure, implanting an RFID chip in your workers might incite privacy concerns, be a tad creepy, and signal the end of days, but we can't help but raise the awesome flag for CityWatcher.com and their efforts to borgify the workplace. Apparently they have planted chips in the upper right arms of two employees assigned to the secure vault which holds the security footage captured by the company, and while it seems like a bit of a PR stunt more than a security measure, the RFID chips are required to access the room, so at least they're not kidding around.
