Linkage

My posts have been slow lately, I know. So, here’s two cool links I can across today:

Wired.com has a nice primer on RFID. On that note, is there an accepted pronunciation for the term? I say it “arfid” but have also heard the acronym spelled out. Also related, John C. Dvorak in episode 16 of This Week in Tech had a fun idea to combat RFID privacy concerns: Put a piece of tin foil in your wallet.

Secondly, the social bookmarking/tech news site Digg.com led me to a fascinating document on TheSmokingGun.com. The post is scans of four typed pages detailing Nixon’s contingency speech in case Armstrong and Aldrin died on the moon, as well as related notes. Very eerie reading.

  1. John C. Dvorak is great. I loved the description in this week’s TWiT about what the “security” button on the front of a Linksys router does — turns it off.
