I'll go with "interesting".  As for "useful", so far IMO the rough  
edges make this particular implementation a net negative -- in several  
meetings I've been in, various RFID reader related gremlins have  
interrupted the flow of the meeting.  To get to "useful" the  
probability of needing to interrupt your train of thought and futz  
with the tech would have to be at least an order of magnitude less.  I  
don't mind, that's why it's an experiment.
