Conference attendees will see first hand where human tracking by commercial and government interests may be headed when they are offered an active RFID conference badge.

Participation in RFID tracking is completely voluntary. If you wish, you can request an electronics-free “unpopulated” badge at registration, or simply remove the battery from your “populated” RFID badge at any time. There will be a limited number of the full-featured badges, so register early to be guaranteed to receive one.

RFID devices are increasingly being embedded into new clothing, handbags, footwear, mobile phones, credit cards, passports, and even tires. Some say this technology is only for “inventory control” and “security” –but The Next HOPE will give you an opportunity to decide for yourself, as you play with uses, abuses, and countermeasures in the OpenAMD system.

OpenAMD will also show the promise and the dark side of familiar social media sites and how they fit into theme of personal privacy when combined with other database and tracking technologies.

The entire project is Open Source, and developers worldwide are invited to create their own apps before and during the conference with the newly released Public API. The possibilities are endless, and all attendees will be part of the fun in this hacker version of massive scale installation art.
