Data exhaustOther deep questions:What (if anything) does it mean to own data? (Like who owns the air)But: very different properties from physical goods(1) Ideas here: co-creation. I give you one, you give me one, we both have 2.Different for $$.(2) While data is infinitely replicable, money isn’t.No “UNDO” button in fraud (what if someone has spent the money they stole?)
- (airplanes vs cars) emphasize the qualitative difference on social data - i am NOT talking about transaction data- i am talking about the next quantum leap . - It is like airplanes over roads. cars are still more important than ever of course, but it is a qualitatively different discussion. And even more important than the current numbers is the growth rateMost important number to measure growth is time to doublingAlso 10M (24 * 60 = 1000) ad requests per minute through the ad exchangeshttp://techcrunch.com/2010/11/16/the-future-will-be-personalized/90M tweets / day90000000 / 24 / 60

Coming soonto a theatre near you:Identity Wars: The Battle to Control Personal DataPersonal data is the doppelganger of the consumer, her very identity as a commercial being. Open the floodgates, as most of the vast quantities of enterprise data generated each day is - one way or another - personal. Data that's transactional, social, local, mobile and on and on.As the leading players jocky for position, control is the name of the game, and the stakes couldn't be higher. We are early in the process of establishing a consumer identity ecosystem, standing on the cusp of major developments. New paradigms will be established and astounding enterprise power stands to be gained. Does anyone own consumer identity data? What precisely does "ownership" of personal data mean? In any case, the objective is not to own the transaction but to control the data it generates. Facebook and Google are central, but dozens of established enterprises and innovative startups are in the game.
