The Death of Privacy
February 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Companies today can learn almost everything about everyone, especially where they are at any particular time, or where they’ve been over a period of time. That’s because people holding smartphones carry transmitters of their geolocation data. The phone is the enabler. It’s easy for services like Google, my Internet service provider, my credit card company, and my phone company to all mine our personal data. One day we’ll know as much about ourselves as Google and Facebook do! Facebook has your friends, Google has your email, Flickr has your pictures–everyone has the data that you created, but you don’t actually have control over it yourself.
