Whatever else you do with RFID, never let any company, government, institution, or person implant an RFID chip, mark, or device on your body. http://end-times-prophecy.com/blog/?p=994

No RFID stories to share but I liked your brief article. Is nice to read of a good way to use technology. It leaves a warm feeling at the heart. This reminds me of another project I read recently in which SMS was being used to rapidly report data of medical assistance provided in under developed countries (i think it was Africa). The innovation here was at the database which received the SMS through a GSM modem and displayed the information with the magic of software. Perhaps this RFID and NFC enabled phones would be handy for this kind of tasks also.
