Letters To The Editor

Password Insecurity
I can't count the times I've tried to explain the error in the philosophy of "if changing passwords twice a year is good, then changing 12 times a year must be better"--invariably with limited success ("Password Complexity Puts Security At Risk," Feb. 21, p. 68).

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Olin Sibert
President, Oxford Systems, Lexington, Mass.


Life-Changing Potential
It seems so obvious that the potential for good that RFID technology offers far outweighs the bad ("RFID: Time To Take A Stand," Feb. 21, p. 72). If the 9-year-old in Florida, Jessica Lunsford, had a subcutaneous variation of the chip John Halamka has, we'd likely know where she is right now. RFID presents a revolutionary and exciting opportunity.

Ron Acker
CEO, AckerDevelopment, Fairfax, Va.


RFID Concerns Are Valid
I'm glad you present both sides of the RFID issue. As a former techno-geek, I see the positive potential of this technology. But being politically active, I see the downside. Unfortunately, the downside view isn't limited to conspiracy theorists.

Richard Kahn
Kahn Landscaping, Hudson, N.H.
