What may be classified as anonymous may, in fact, be pseudonymous. With pseudonymity, an ID or number of some sort is typically used to tie back to an individual – without revealing any PII, such as the person’s name.

Digital Footprints - What to look for when Hiring Teachers - Instructional Tech Talk | My Digital FootPrint | Scoop.it
The Digital Footprint We have all heard the term and most of the time we only relate it to our own personal presence on the web. Most of our gut reactions are to Google someone to look for something ‘bad’ that would take them out of the running.

Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy

Declaring personal data bankruptcy and the cost of privacy | My Digital FootPrint | Scoop.it
In the digital economy, your data profile has value, but judging from what I watched happen recently in a London shopping mall, a lot of us give it away for free.

Gust MEES's curator insight, February 19, 4:54 AM
We’re a society in conflict. On one hand there’s outrage over government surveillance programs and wholesale data breaches. 28% of the online population claims to use tools to disguise their identity or location. 61% of Americans say personal rights and freedoms command higher priority than anti-terror measures. On the other hand, so many trade their identities away for a pittance, or even for nothing – valuing them, wrongly, at zero. 

Why are they so ready to surrender their privacy to commercial interests? Especially when their trust is betrayed so regularly due to security lapses, with such damning publicity for retailers, banks, and more usual suspects? 

A lot of us voluntarily declare personal data bankruptcy. It’s a big mistake.

What’s personal data bankruptcy? It’s when you declare your personal profile worthless. You want to know how often I go to the movies? What features I like in a new car? What magazines I read?


Anyone curious is going to use all that data to make money – so pay me.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 2, 7:19 PM

Quote "Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

Richard Platt's curator insight, February 3, 7:08 PM

The title of the post says it all, real need and delivering value to the user.  "Wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

Vivalist's curator insight, February 5, 4:53 AM

"Intel thinks wearables will be more ubiquitous than computers or phones. And it’s right. You won’t have just one wearable—you’ll have dozens. The biggest mistake everyone makes is assuming we’re going to wear the same one all the time.

That’s because, traditionally, wearables have done bits and pieces of what our phones already do. Aside from tracking movements, what are these bands and glasses besides proxy screens for our phones?

Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering."

Survey: Diabetes patients who use digital tools self-report better health | mobihealthnews | My Digital FootPrint | Scoop.it

Klick Health employed SSI to poll 2,000 American adults with diabetes either online or via the telephone. Based on responses about how they use technology to manage their health, they segmented the group into three categories: those who manage their health daily or weekly with integrated digital technologies (integrators), those who go online to seek health information on a monthly basis (seekers), and those who don’t use the internet to manage their health at all (traditionalists).
