Appearing in the latter half of the show, privacy expert Katherine Albrecht warned of GE's development of a technology called "Smart Grid." The plan calls for people to install "smart" meters and thermostats in their homes, which would allow outside parties to monitor their household activities remotely. Sometimes appliances could be turned off during peak usage hours, which could pose problems. And such detailed monitoring would encroach on people's privacy, she noted.
Albrecht also expressed concerns over the increased usage of RFID tags to track drivers in their cars. Such tags may also be added to "enhanced" driver's licenses, and this would turn the cards into remotely readable tracking devices-- making people trackable all the time. She offers a newsletter about RFID privacy issues at spychips.com.
