That would be very smart. Reality will be that the tyical yes-men will not let the opportunity to crawl into someones 'assimilator'. Others will keep their mouth shut out of fear and play along. Most of those who wanted to opt out will be persuaded bribed with a small gift. Wanna have a new smartphone?
And those that actually are smart enough not to play along will only lose. But yes, I prefer to live without a job before I would let myself be tagged like a dog.
Actually, someone should create a minicapacitor that charges off the body somehow, hack the supply chain to those 'rice' implants, and have those installed instead!

It's been going on for years. You all carry around a personal tracking device that posts where you are and what you are doing every day and who you are with including pictures and videos. The marketing gurus call it a "smart phone" and y'all fell for it long ago.

This is to inform you that a new standard CSC-S17-001 Standard for standards has been published on CSC Share point site . This replaces the existing Standard GGC-S13-001 Standard for Standards which has been archived.
The new Standard replaces all GGC words with CSC and the Standards template incorporates the name and business unit of the document owner with some minor changes in the process of publishing the standard document.
I personally would really appreciate knowing that the standards are kept up to date, and that there is a revision history that is terse enough to let me know I don't have to go back and read it to understand the changes.
Change control standards, which may be compliant with the new standard and authorized early as a policy exception (under the old standard), or is compliant with the old standard and will be updated on the next scheduled review.

I wish some tiny part of me could claim this wasn't believable. Having worked in government though, I have received similar and even been involved in projects with sub-sub-committees to decide what color to make the font.
