Show and tell for dorks

Art, technology and civil liberties will collide on stage tonight in a demonstration designed to get under your skin.

This month’s dorkbot in Seattle features tech researcher Joe McCarthy presenting the “Practicalities, Peril and Promise of RFID.”

Entrepreneur Amal Graafstra will discuss his RFID-chipped hands,

Dr. Virginia Stevens will chip another willing participant, and a representative from the American Civil Liberties Union will explore the social implications.

Free and open to all. Kudos to curator Mike Worobec for bringing so many elements of the issue together in a public forum.
