RFID Passports - Yay!

Check out Gizmodo for links to a NY Times review of the new US passport. The built in RFID chip has some roadblocks for indentity thieves, but that's not going to last long.

Electronic ID, soon e-money, etc. everything will be on a file on a computer, ready for manipulation. If someone decides to push delete, you're screwed, you don't exist anymore. The future is scary my friends, but only after July 4th, because once you've seen "Transformers" nothing else will matter. :-)

And yes, the new passport is fugly. Just sayin'. Oh wait, I'm not being a patriot.

It's beautiful.
