Looks like I have been living

Looks like I have been living under a rock. i spent the past weekend with my sister and her family. My brother-in-law and I got into a talk about, of all things, libraries. Somehow the conversation turned to the use of radio frequency id in his local library. While, I was familiar with the term at a baseline level, I had no idea how wide this technology spread.

He mentioned how the local library used them on everything they checked out. He also mentioned, how publishers are using RFID as a connection between print and online platforms.

This propelled me to think about my own ereading experience, and that I needed to educate myself on the nuance and capabilities of RFID.
Currently, I'm looking to learn about RFID readers(is www.rfidreader.com a good place to start?) and really understand the process.

Man, my inner nerd came out in this post! I'm just really excited when I have a chance to learn about something new, especially an emerging technology.
