A post by Mathew Ingram got me thinking. All these social networks. All these separate services that we willingly give our personal data too. Why?
Why can’t they license this data just like they license marketing research data? Why can’t they pay me royalties for my data? Instead we all give them this valuable information.
There has just got to be a way to do this opposite than the way we have been – giving free information away in a trade for a Facebook applet of questionable value. Our personal info is worth money – is your vampire chump?
