Perceptive Peers Go Pervasive, Persuasively

The House of Lords debates pervasive computing. As IdentityBlog comments. an unelected second House may seem like an anchronism, but the standard of debate is invariably higgher, especially on specialised technical topics, than in the Commons. Note the concern not just for privacy generally, but also for whether the Data Protection Act applies, for patient rights, and for environmental damage.

There is something rather odd about a Lord Sainsbury talking about what goes on in the back of supermarkets.

It is one of the better explanations of RFID I have heard.

looking forward to the Edinburgh thingy next month.
