Disable your Ashcroft-enabled passport

Beginning next year, U.S. passports will include an RFID chip that allows customs to grab your personal information more effeciently. It also, theoretically, could allow hackers, foreign governments, right-wing nut job politicians, and other assorted “evil doers” to siliently grab your personal information and track your every move.

So how do you disable this “feature”? Grab a hammer and pound that sucker senseless. Wired magazine has more info on this topic.
