      Richard – thanks for a great comment. I am very committed, as you are, to individuals having the decision making power over their personal data and its use.
      I thoroughly support your contention about data use ‘not in the way it was originally intended’ being one of the key issues of our age. I wa behavioural s working on this when at Peppers and Rogers in the 90s – and believe me, what we could infer or derive from simple data (not even stats) then was pretty impressive.

      One of our clients is Lifetime Health Diary and they are working on health and wellness data sets. The challenge for them (as for Google and Facebook) is where to draw the line. When is data use for “good” means [e.g. chronic health condition management] allowable and when is data for “less-good” means to be deplored?

      Maybe we do need a Global Data Czar after all. Someone’s got to make the hard decisions and I certainly don’t want the job.

      P.S. why won’t HuffTechUK allow comments on your story?
