There's a story of possible interest to the PETS community about an
NFC/fingerprint proof of age technology being piloted in the UK.  It
maintains privacy of address or other ID card fields, at cost of
possible desensitization of fingerprinting.

Also, I'm unsure if NFC is actually anonymous as claimed, or if
there's an NFC id which would act as a pseudonym.

Regardless, I thought that some in this community would be interested.
