A workbook about the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), teaching the reader "how to become a zapped! RFID Scout." Witty and well designed as a teaching tool, this workbook provides information about surveillance, tracking and information collected using RFID technology along with exercises, true and false quizzes, and much more.


Working across media and disciplines, Brooke Singer creates platforms for local knowledge to connect, inform and conflict with official data descriptions. She engages technoscience as an artist, educator, nonspecialist and collaborator. Her work lives “on” and “off” line in the form of websites, workshops, photography, maps, installations and performances that involves public participation in pursuit of social change. She is co-founder of the art, technology and activist group, Preemptive Media and a professor of New Media at Purchase College, State University of New York.
