Big Brother is Tracking me!

Well, I have been told, starting tomorrow!

On the back of the Rational Software Development Conference, there is an RFID chip (with a large antenna). Above every meeting room, on the inside, partially invisible until you get in the room, are RFID transceivers. So each time a show attendee will attend a session, they will be tracked. Now, looking at the size of the antennas on the transponders, I would suspect that, with a little triangulation, they may be able to track us throughout the conference centre! 🙂 OK… Probably not given the typical range of RFID (and yes, I do know that Yagi antennas have been used to read RFID for long distances, but these aren’t it), but one never knows…

And no. I will not disable my RFID chip. That’s probably against IBM conduct guidelines…
