Fresh from my visit for my 20th Reunion, my alma mater has disclosed a database breach resulting in the loss of faculty personal information.

From Yahoo::

In a U.S. government warning high on the creepiness scale, the Defense Department cautioned its American contractors over what it described as a new espionage threat: Canadian coins with tiny radio frequency transmitters hidden inside.
It is very strange. The article points out what a poor mechanism it is for tracking: short distance only, likely to be used to buy something, etc. I would think they must have been looking for a very limited amount of information. The location of a safe house, for example. While the distance is limited, you could compensate for that with an 'rfid rifle'.

on their acquisition by HP and to me, since I was an early angel investor in SPI - so long ago I cannot remember what year it was. Their application to the ATDC had just been rejected as they were viewed as 'unreceptive to coaching', IIRC. I was an entrepreneur-in-residence at ATDC at the time, so it must have late 2000. For what it's worth, they were indeed unreceptive to coaching, except from Brian Cohen who has done a great job as CEO.
