Fingerprinting children

We've had scores of complaints about the growing use of children's biometrics at school. In particular the Microlib Junior Librarian system has worried many parents. This stores each child's thumbprint as an algorithm on the school library system and when the child wants to take books out, she simply puts her thumb on a scanner and the computer does the rest.

There's now a website containing everything you need to know about the Microlib system and the worry surrounding it. Go read, and scroll down to the bottom of the front page to vote in the poll.
