a small measure of privacy

Getting a new passport in 2007?  I will be, and the first thing I’ll do after getting it is “sit on it wrong”.   With a hammer.  Why?  Because the old-fashioned printed-on-paper part of it is just as useful as a 2006 passport, which people will need to be able to deal with until 2016 at least.  That gives them 9 more years to work out any kinks in the system.

  1. Wow. I’ve done a lot of research on RFID, and any use of it scares the bejesus out of me. I’m not a conspiracy theorist by any means – just a realist. And since I will also be getting a passport in 2007, I guess it’s time to go to the hardware store too (something I don’t do often enough, apparently).
