Dr. Katherine Albrecht (RFID Expert) visits the Infamous Baja Beach Club (Where Club Patrons were Chipped)
By Martin Hill, 2/13/08

Dr. Katherine Albrecht, co-author of the best-selling book 'SPYCHIPS How Major Corporations Plan to Track your Every Move with RFID' and director of CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) has a daily radio show on GCN. She holds a Doctorate in Education from Harvard University with a research focus in consumer education, privacy and psychology.
WTPRN just re-ran a program from October 22, 2007 in which Dr. Albrecht talks about attending a 'RECALLING RFID' Conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
During her visit to the Netherlands, Dr. Albrecht visited the BAJA BEACH CLUB bar with a documentary camera crew. The nightclub, along with it's affiliate club in Spain, offered patrons the opportunity to be implanted with RFID chips a few years ago. In 2004, The Baja Beach Club in Barcelona Spain got a great deal of media attention and praise when it partnered with Applied Digital solutions to offer RFID microchip implants to their customers. At the time, management of the club boasted about the program's popularlity and demand:

"The VeriPay chipping event was a huge success," said Conrad K. Chase, Director of the Baja Beach Clubs International. "Everyone embraced the electronic payment application. My customers like the fact that they do not have to carry a credit card or ID card with them. With the VeriPay system, they no longer have to worry about their credit cards getting lost or stolen." ['Applications Continue to Grow for Applied Digital Solutions' VeriPay;' [BUSINESS WIRE, April 5, 2004] Listen to an insightful and shocking update on the purportedly 'popular' RFID program, from Dr. Albrecht's visit to the infamous seedy bar in October 2007. [Audio of the 10/22/07 program can be found here: Hour 1 MP3, Hour 2 MP3, Ram format, or m3U.]

During her broadcast, Dr. Albrecht reveals that the Barcelona club has since gone out of business, and the Amsterdam bar stopped chipping customers some time ago and rarely uses the system at all, according to the chipped spokesman Albrecht interviewed. The RFID card reader at the club didn't have batteries, was covered in dirty scotch tape and the 'exclusive lounge area' for RFID chipped patrons consisted of an empty area in a corner upstairs with 2 tables surrounded by a rope.

EXCERPT:

Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP), a leading manufacturer and marketer of identification, tracking, security and merchandising solutions for the retail industry and its supply chain, today announced that a number of major retailers are now piloting its Evolve state-of-the-art shrink management technology, which was introduced earlier this year.

Retailers now utilizing the Evolve products include Anchor Blue, Babies R Us, CVS, LensCrafters, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Vans and Wilsons.

Evolve is Checkpoint's next-generation suite of electronic article surveillance (EAS) products. Evolve solutions provide retailers with a highly-scalable EAS system that helps reduce shrink, boost profitability and improve the customer shopping experience. In tandem with RFID technology, Evolve can also increase inventory visibility and accuracy through its in-store tracking capabilities.

Featuring improved Radio Frequency (RF) tag detection, Smart Alarm Management (SAM) to improve system integrity, and a Software Defined Radio (SDR) that can support multiple EAS and RFID tag frequencies, Evolve significantly improves the performance of traditional EAS technologies and provides retailers with a migration path for RFID adoption.
