Usual suspects convened at Sue Blom’s to discuss privacy issues, which focused on the developing technology of RFID (radio frequency identification) chips. These ultra small transponders are being used for inventory control and loss prevention at the present time. Similar devices are being used as identification and location devices for both pets and people. We kicked around thoughts on what information could or should be contained in such chips, and what measures could be taken to insure privacy of encoded data.
