bigger nerd than ever

Toronto, 2014.04.24

I've found a way to be a bigger nerd than ever; using an RFID-proof wallet. It's the natural outcome of having been the victim of identity theft AND having been subject to a data leak at a financial institution. I'm now getting more and more paranoid. And when I heard the "chief information security officer" of one of Canada's major banks speak at a conference six months ago about the importance of using an RFID-secure wallet to protect his identity and his credit/debit card, it stuck in my mind. While shopping for a new rear bicycle light tonight I saw an RFID-proof wallet in the store, and now I'm the proud carrier of a vinyl wallet.

Goodbye fancy deer-skin wallet. Hello possible protection from identity thieves stealing my details through a passive scanner. I figure it'll also shield me from accidental purchases on POS devices. It's a win all 'round.
