Live Social Semantics - ESWC 2010

Many times you meet interesting people during a congress, but either because you are in a rush or because of social shyness, you may lose the chance to have their contact details —therefore, a possible prolific collaboration would be lost—.

In order to minimize this, in Extended Semantic Web Conference 2010, SocioPatterns project is offering a RFID chip so people who desire to take part in the experience can easily identify their interlocutors in the Web. More details here…

UPDATE: Live video of the experiment


very nice!!
But it looks like it may have some problems with respecting the privacy of the people who attend a conference. Your boss will be able to check whether you are really attending the meeting or sleeping in the hotel/having a beer :-)
