Hello everyone,

I have been working closely with the NFC group here at my company. Here are some use cases for thoughts:
- Tap and Play: I can tap my device with another device and start playing a Peer-to-peer game.
- Tap and Pay: I can tap my device with a commerce reader and pay
- Tap and Share: I can tap and share a piece of data, like coupons, contacts.
- Tap and Control: I can tap and control another device, like a TV remote
- Tap and Read: Read NFC tags.

Dom and I have checked and believe that we would need a charter
extension to publish working drafts for NFC. There is no problem
discussing use cases, and a charter extension is a straightforward
matter if current WG members agree.

So please do bring along your list of use cases!
