Re: What it will take for people to change
"Why should 'Data-oil' be different?"
Data and oil are very different.
Oil is a source of energy. Energy is useful. You can do actual work with it.
"Data" in the sense it's being used here is of very dubious intrinsic value. The most intrinsically valuable piece of data about me as far as advertisers are concerned is that I react very negatively to being advertised at and that's the one piece of data that the advertising industry would want to keep away from their
suckers advertiser clients.
