      (Just not necessarily with all of them.)
    • 13. The Perfect (Data) Storm
      • Today, we can capture what was invisible and untrackable because of three trends
      • Social relationships
        • Explicit friends, profiles, and behavior
      • Culture of sharing
        • Content creation, tagging, and lifestreaming
      • Ambient data generation and capture
        • Location, browsing and search history, purchases
    • 14. Communications can fill in the social graph
    • 15. Google already tracks who you email the most
    • 16. As “life devices”, mobile becomes the core of implicit data Web apps like Yahoo! OneConnect pull in social graph data Can tap into location and address book today In the future, will tap into call log, messaging, browsing, and calendar as well
    • 17. A “social algorithm” will make privacy and permissions easier to manage
      • Context makes content privacy easier
        • Social signals provide a shorthand for our mental map of relationships
        • Suggests who might want to see it, e.g. photo sharing
      • Community based privacy
        • Suggests people like you have this type of privacy
    • 18. Ambient data informs next actions to take
      • Times when contact emails  best time to email him
      • Rank among contacts
      • Phone number extracted from emails
      • Request a meeting
    • 19. Organizing and sharing your photos Take a photo with your GPS and compass enabled camera (adds metadata to the photo) Face recognition software identifies people in your social graph (leverages existing social graph) Calendar shows I’m on vacation (provides context) Sends it to my mom’s photo frame (sets default permissions)
