One interesting “feature” that I’ve got stuck to my name badge is a RFID tag…it claims to have a random number only and does not contain any personal data…
…the RFID is monitoring the flow of people in and out of the preconference session rooms (it’ll be switched off after the keynote demo). Neat. You can remove the RFID of course, should you wish to be excluded.
And, lunch…was sponsored by Borland. The highlight of lunch, apart from the food and the Magnum white (ice-cream) was the “flooky” meeting with and dining with Michael Rys of W3C and XQuery fame.
