Where’s My Living Data?

By default, Internet connected devices record data about us and our environment for upload to clouds. Once in the cloud, we likely aren’t aware it exists, what exactly was collected , whether we have access it, that we are able to delete it, and/or whether we are able to download it. In this blog, I will document the journey of personal discovery as I go through the motions of figuring it all out. In the end, I now better understand what is collected even though I do not believe what I’ve accessed is anywhere near complete and certainly is not made be easy to access. Our virtual identity is scattered across the Internet with more detail about us that we, our families and our friends know about us. In this journey, we’ll examine how they know who we are, where we are, what we think, what we enjoy, what we buy, how we act, how we sleep, and how we feel. Ultimately, if we are known so well, we can also be manipulated. Unfortunately, the better you know someone the more easily you can get them to do what you want.
