"The future of the internet is an internet of connected objects," says Jean-Francios Kitten in this short BBC article on Radio Frequency ID tags. The technology is brilliantly terrifying: tagged objects connected to the internet, in much the same way a computer or phone is connected, which makes brick-and-mortar objects (objects of the real) digitally interactive in real-time. If such can be achieved with, say, a book, then it is only a matter of time before such tags are used with animate objects: humans. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to hear of the technology employed currently. I wonder at the potentials for the development of a wi-fi poetics.
