Yes, there will be many logical, rational, necessary reasons to get your own personal microchip--security reasons, health reasons, economic reasons, you name it. The "need" is becoming more apparent all the time. Soon it will be the in thing to do, and then the customary thing, and eventually the mandatory thing.
Orwellian society a quick journey: The tremendous explosion in surveillance-enabling technologies, including databases, computers, cameras, sensors, wireless networks, implantable microchips, GPS, and biometrics; and the weakening of civil-liberty protections, as government and private surveillance increases and a giant infrastructure tying the technologies together is contemplated.
