Dr. Katherine Albrecht discusses her book Spychips, published almost a decade ago, and reflects on RFID threats today as well as from other technologies. The US Goverment has decided to use the same RFID system being developed by commercial industry which will become ubiquitous by placing both RFID chips and scanners everywhere. She also discusses R.J. Rummel's work on democide and how the very nature of government and corporate surveillance is totalitarian. Dr. Albrecht also gives the history of the private search engine StartPage and the private encrypted Netherlands-based email service StartMail, who she also works with and helped co-found.
