Finders Keepers

I found my Java smartcard!

I was picking up the playroom this morning at an ungodly early hour today & discovered my long lost Javacard. My 5 year old put it in her doctor kit because she wanted to be sure that when Dr. Dennedy goes to her fictional hospital that she would have "a key to get in in the morning & so that everyone knows that I am the one who knows what to do to the sick people." She was even walking around to doors and saying "BEEP" before going in.

Her sister apparently did not meet the appropriate access level for the doctors office-- she was a patient & had to wait for treatment.

Ah the joys of motherhood. That moment when your child realizes the value of symbology for authentication, role based access & presents a proximity reader use case....sublime.

The fascinating think was, of course, that she knew what the card was! Someone was paying attention on "take your daughter to work" day! :)ave

Yes, it's a little scary when geeks raise geeks. I was soundly rejected by her Kindergarten teacher for "Job Day" at school because she had no idea what I do for a living & was certain that the kids wouldn't either. Big Ears kiddo trotted over, pulled on her teacher's hem & said, "It's easy. Mom makes everyone hide their credit card numbers!." Not bad!
