Travel ID events at MIT, 5 December 2005

I won’t be able to attend (I’ll just be getting back from the ICANN meeting in Vancouver, Canada, where I hope to raise the issue of .travel ), but there will be two potentially very interesting gatherings, probably attended by some of the same people, at MIT on Monday, 5 December 2005:

  • The in-person MIT Public Forum on the REAL ID Act of 2005 from 09:00-15:00 at the Media Lab (Bldg. E15, Bartos Theater) will include key USA government staff on RFID personal identity credential initiatives in the Department of Homeland Security and the Executive Office of the President, among others.
  • That same evening from 18:30-20:30, the RFID Special Interest Group (SIG) of the MIT Enterprise Forum meeting at the MIT Tang Center (Bldg. E51-376) will hear from representatives of four key corporations involved in RFID passport production and deployment. (The next meeting of the RFID SIG on 9 January 2006 would also be worth attending: it will be devoted to the topic of RFID usage in mass transit tickets, passes, and passenger tracking.)

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
