This is good news, or would be if it meant Google were becoming more ethical with regards …

The new – unsustainable – consensus around personal data

Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

"The fault line is this. Most of the debate so far, including the assumptions upon which the new consensus are built – are based on a uniformly organisation-centric view" of customer/personal data. This organisation-centric perspective assumes that organisations are the only entities collecting and use customer data. Under the this model organisations collect data about their customers and use this data to drive their own internal processes, resulting in actions which they do to customers (such as targeting them with advertising messages and offers)."

This Is Ello’s New Charter and What It Means

This Is Ello’s New Charter and What It Means | Digital Footprint | Scoop.it
This morning, Ello officially closed a deal for $5.5 million in venture capital funding. Normally, this would be alarming — VC money typically indicates an exit strategy, which for social networks usually means ad-mongering and selling user data to the highest bidder. But Ello's found a way to permanently head those complaints off at the…

Thoughts on Google+ | Digital Footprint | Scoop.it
I fucked up. So has Google.
Peter Vander Auwera's insight:

Fantastic post by Chris Messina, with lots of great reflections on Identity, Privacy and Empowerment

 

"I’ll be the first (well, maybe the second) to admit that we’re no longer living in the golden era of social networking. "


"So why does the competition for control of digital identity matter anymore? Frankly, because as I’ve long held, identity is the platform — the killer app of networked personal computing devices (even more so as we increasingly depend on more than one authenticated device at a time!)."


"....changes the nature of the conversation by making it less about “privacy” and more about empowerment. While some people will freak out (as they always do), this would be a bold, productive, future-forward direction to take. Hell, we’re living in this reality already—but few give straight talk about what’s going on, and how their data is, or be could, be used for their benefit"
