Contents of Your Transportation Pass Revealed

Researchers at the Université catholique de Louvain have demonstrated that the contact-less (RFID) Belgium transportation card called MOBIB can actually reveal information about birthdate, zipcode, and the last three travels.

I think that 2009 will have many more such revelations about the dangers of proximity-based technology, whether used for transportation or more importantly things like identification (drivers license) and passports.
