Show Your Hand, Not Your ID

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I got an email from the Chronicle this morning, remarkable in itself, advising of an article and forum "the readers of Stephen's Web might be interested in participating in." It's a good item in and of itself, exploring the use of biometrics at schools to manage access or even to get meals at the cafeteria. As you can expect, the usual issues about privacy arise, which is the basis of the online discussion to follow. The email notes that it is "free and open to the public," a sign, perhaps, that the Chronicle is becoming sensitive to the impact of its subscriber-only policy elsewhere on the site.
