The Personal Data Ecosystem

Kaliya Hamlin joins us to talk about the Personal Data Ecosystem, a model that flips the privacy model on its head and says people should have a copy of all their digital bread crumb trails in one place that is under their control that they can manage. Data types range from geo-location logs, web surfing history, social network/graph connections, and more. Cloud services are being developed to provide these services. Markets become more efficient and makes the current market practices of cookies and other methods of behavioral tracking obsolete.

The Benefits of Publicness

We're paying plenty of attention to privacy, bringing perhaps more controls and protections we've ever had. At the same time, Jeff will argue that we need to pay attention to the value of publicness or else we risk losing the value of the connections the net enables.
