“With privacy-by-design devices, users can commodify their own data and reap economic rewards for sharing their information. Like this, the data economy gains innumerable new dimensions, new opportunities for deal-making, and the individual gains financial incentive for sharing their data with whoever they choose. Everybody wins.
Internet of Things is here to stay. The convenience of internet-connected devices is too grand for us to ignore, but it is up to us to ensure that they serve as tools and not liabilities. It is up to us to decide if these devices will improve our lives or serve as surveillance systems for Big Tech. It is time for us to rethink our infrastructure and build a data economy centered around those who produce the data. It is time for us to claim our fair share.”
