I am interested in gauging the cycling community's response to RFID technology. BikeRegistryCanada.com is looking to integrate this technology into its products and services. There are some privacy concerns with this technology.
Already many manufacturers of products, including bike makers like Pacific Cycle, are at the very least contemplating the idea of putting an RFID chip in all their bikes to track inventory, from the point manufacture to the point of sale. Does the cycling community want this in their bikes? Do we even have a choice? If abused this technology could allow large corporations and your government to track your every move. Where you shop, What you buy, Who and Where you visit, Where you spend your time and money. Already there is the EPIC code, which if enacted into law, would guarantee individual Privacy. From our point of view this technology is wonderful advancement in bicycle security and theft prevention--so long as privacy is ensured. We feel a balance can be struck, between security and protecting ones privacy and are endeavoring to achieve that.
WHAT ARE YOURE THOUGHTS???
