Privacy As Currency

Privacy As Currency | Education Technology | Scoop.it
Arguments for and against the use of "Big Data" to tailor services and
advertisements litter the blogosphere, but one thing is certain: Without
this data, many of the tools society depends on would be
inconceivable. However, these revolutionary tools aren't without
consequences.  In one prolific example, captured by Charles Duhigg in his
book The Power of Habit, the national retailer Target predicts the
pregnancy of, and sends relevant advertisements to, a teenage girl at such
an early stage of her pregnancy that her family, friends, and boyfriend had
not yet been informed of the new development. The situation caused such an
uproar among privacy advocates and those against general 'creepiness' of
the situation, that Target artificially diluted the accuracy of its
algorithms in order to prevent alienating future customers. 

While companies like Target grapple with the nuances of using this data,
break through technologies have emerged that enable us to turn our unused
rooms into mini-hostels, prevent food shortages in Philadelphia, and create
insanely popular TV shows like Luke Cage. Unfortunately, these technologies
face the same privacy concerns that Target once grappled with, and the
privacy debate continues to evolve.  This evolution must continuously be
refined as society and technology advance, or the political, legal, and
ethical frameworks it helped create will no longer provide much protection.
Unfortunately, while this debate has evolved around the safety of consumers
and the protection of data, there has been little discussion about the
economic security of consumers and their data.

Just as countless technological innovations were made possible throughout
human history by capitalizing on previously wasted byproducts, data must
one day cease to be treated as happenstance, and be understood for the
value it possesses. It's not enough for the government to protect the only
 physical safety of its citizens, it must enable its citizens to be
educated and capable enough to fight for their economic security in light
of a booming industry. It's only in doing so that consumers will be able to
understand the true cost of their consumerism.
