Mediamatic RFID Reader
Mediamatic, the Amsterdam cultural institution, has published a comprehensive reader on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), as a preparation for their upcoming workshop on The Internet of Things (9-11 May – speakers include Régine Debatty and Malcolm McCullough).

“Radio frequency identification is a technology that is now rapidly developing. A growing number of logistical companies sees the advantages and possibilities of RFID for managing large bodies of objects. But to what uses can this technology be applied that are not in the logistical realm? How can it serve and/or change society and human interaction? How does it change the concept of information and information networks as we know them today? This reader compiles a number of resources on the technical and philosophical aspects of RFID.”
