It almost feels like "The Wild West"; all your behavioural data (c f land) is out there for grabs to be "colonized". Anyone can claim my personal information ("you signed this!"). Even if I hide in a cave that's registered by the #robberbarons Google/FB et al.
More on #privacy: I guess the problem starts when machines can identify and record behaviour, as opposed to earlier when some human needed to record information. Does this have and end? When machines can identify and record feelings, will Google snoop and collect data on my love life? Push me #tinder ads when I'm feeling lonely? 🙁 Who owns data on my feelings? What does that ownership imply?
General questions here on #privacy: If I walk thru my living room, is *knowledge of that behaviour* "my data"? If I walk across a town square, is that "my data"? Does it differ if I am identified as an individual or just classified as "male, caucasian, 60+ years"? What does this ownership imply?
