From "Anywhere, Anytime, Anyone" to "The right Information at the
right Time, in the right Place, in the right Way to the right Person"

Abstract. RFID technologies offer opportunities and risks. This presentation will argue that the true challenges transcend the development of the technology itself but will create new social contexts, will raise numerous ethical issues (e.g., privacy), will lead to new divisions of labor, and will redefine the role of humans in socio-technical environments. The presentation will specifically explore that the scare resource in the envisioned socio-technical environments will not be information per se, but human attention.
