Unhackable Passports Hackable


For every technology another technology can do an end-around on it. Anything electronic makes me nervous. When people think a technology is unbeatable, they get lazy. Ultimately, human vigilance, physical transactions and tangible exchanges will always be more secure than electronic anything. Not that I don't use or enjoy tech. To the contrary, I love how my life is simplified. But I'm not so naive to believe that there isn't a potential for co-opting the information to be used in bad ways.
