RFID: No silver bullet
from Material Flows
"Silver bullet" is the worst pejorative you can use in describing a technology. It links any power that technology might have to superstition. We can thank marketers for much of the fiction written about science, but it doesn't mean their products are science fiction; just overhyped. RFID technology fell victim to the curse of the silver bullet a few years ago. The realities of costs and physics threatened to do it in. But thanks to people like Sue Hutchinson, RFID's story is being transferred to the non-fiction section in the public mindset.
