As follow-up to last night's post and question about RFID, TechEssence has posted a nice overview of RFID today that covers a high level summary of the technology, costs and benefits. There's even a printer friendly version.

I am very skeptical of the return on investment (ROI) for RFID at this point. In a world of unlimited resources it would be ok. But since the cost for our system could reach $5 million, and a comprehensive implementation is necessary to receive full benefit, this technology is hard for me to justify (and pitch to our funders.) It seems to me that the system has greater needs with more far reaching benefits than would be derived from investing in RFID now. Susan Harden
