It's Time We Talk About Data

Print Share
A conversation on data has become imperative. For years, we have been giving away our data, acquiescing to the commoditization of our personal information for companies to sell us goods, and never really thinking about what else we were giving away in the process. If I get free use of a platform or an app, does that mean it should have unlimited rights to all my information? Who owns that data? What does online privacy mean? What are the social responsibilities between private companies and individuals? What about the trust between data providers and users?
