William McKnight

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I will periodically be sharing my thoughts and observations on information management here in the blog. I am passionate about the effective creation, management and distribution of information for the benefit of company goals, and I'm thrilled to be a part of my clients' growth plans and connect what the industry provides to those goals. I have played many roles, but the perspective I come from is benefit to the end client. I hope the entries can be of some modest benefit to that goal. Please share your thoughts and input to the topics.

Of all the RFID uses I've heard of, this one is the most unnerving because there's no clue who is behind it. And while chips in coins is seemingly ineffective given what we think we know about reader technology, it leaves open the possibility that there is stronger reader technology out there under the radar.

Then again, it was probably a targeted operation for the individuals given the coins, perhaps by a program accepting the short-term nature of the association of person and coin and perhaps simply for detecting if the individual passed a certain, specific reader. Of course, I'm wandering off into James Bond land here, but, given the cost and trouble to do the coin tagging and plant them, I suspect it was hopeful about something someone deemed important.
