I’m reading the EPC™ Radio-Frequency Identity Protocols Generation-2 UHF RFID Specification for RFID Air Interface … you know, for fun. Probably the worst part of pouring through this super dry protocol spec is all the acronyms - I’m constantly CTRL-F’ing through the document and losing my place. So I wrote up a list of all the acronyms in a text document and keep it open next to my PDF.

And because I am “proponent of open source” with nothing useful to open source, I am providing this great service to the world via a Gist. Should you, or someone you know and care about, find yourself also reading the EPC Gen2 Spec, I hope this article is of some value to you.
