Chips as People?

Are chimpanzees people? I had a discussion with the Snook about this article last night. He came down on the side of emphatically not, mostly because we're genetically pretty close to lots of other things too. I like the other argument though, that if they can communicate with us and share so many of our complex behaviours, then that makes them "people" no matter what the genetics say. (Or at the very least, ramen.)
