    Queen Cards

    If you happened to watch the traditional annual opening of the United Kingdom Parliament and listen to Queen Elizabeth II read what her government is planning to do you would have heard mentioned identity cards for the country. An article in InfoWorld didn't waste anytime highlighting this.

    Some countries are doing this to some extent, and in the current world of dangerous strangers it is a capital idea (but not new). I think a card that had biometric identifiers would be great - especially if it helped us get through those TSA lines at the airport faster. Now if you're a criminal or terrorist or a paranoid-type then you might not like the idea. Personally, I say it's overdue!
