The RFID Network announces the creation of http://RFIDWikipedia.org, a website designed to be the world’s authoritative resource for understanding Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and how to use it successfully and responsibly.
RFID technology is a tool that when used responsibly, can benefit people in ways that are not only convenient, but save lives. The first and one of the most important applications of RFID technology is to locate and identify airplanes. If you press a button on your car key to unlock the door, you're using RFID technology. RFID is also used to help prevent counterfeiting of pharmaceutical prescription drugs, as well as food traceability which helps ensure food safety and prevents the spread of disease.
Like other Wikipedia’s, the content in RFID Wikipedia may be read by everyone. However, authoring and editing is limited to highly qualified subject matter experts. This policy avoids mis-information, unencyclopedic content, and vandalism as well as ensures the most accurate, up-to-date information available. Louis Sirico, host of The RFID Network syndicated video series explains, “There is so much inaccurate information about RFID on the internet, it’s no wonder people are confused. Every definition of RFID I’ve seen listed in the major search engines is wrong. They define the technology with terms such as ‘tiny chips’ and ‘tracking people’, it’s no wonder RFID is the subject of controversy. The world needs an accurate reference regarding the technology.”
Although RFID Wikipedia is officially launched, it is currently considered 'under construction' and many of the entries do not yet have content. This will change with time as the site is designed to be a 'living reference' with ever updating information.
