Big Brother is spying on us

One delegate was so incensed at having the barcode on his EPCA name badge scanned on entry to every conference event that he cut the barcode off, he told the Blog on Monday afternoon in the ICIS suite.


Having swipe cards tracking your movements within a company is legitimate for security reasons he said, but not here where it is just for commercial reasons.


The constant scanning made him feel like a pig on its way through the slaughterhouse.


It is a breach of privacy, he protested, but admitted that one of his friends had called him “the last hippy” in the industry.
