"Earlier this month, KrebsOnSecurity received an email from a researcher who said he got a .gov domain simply by filling out and emailing an online form, grabbing some letterhead off the homepage of a small U.S. town that only has a “.us” domain name, and impersonating the town’s mayor in the application."

The NFC tags seemed to be of interest, so I called the place I bought them from and bought a few more. open to suggestions for what to do with them, either next year at or something else ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you want some and you're at , let me know
