This event may attract lots of paranoid people, but it seems like an
important topic.  Many libraries are considering putting RFID chips
with unique serial numbers into books, to help keep track of the books
more easily.  In some cases, there may be a risk that the presence of
the chips could allow library patrons (or their reading habits) to be
tracked surreptitiously.

Lee Tien will be on a panel talking about this at 6:00p tomorrow at
the SF Main Library, at Civic Center BART.
