A Suitcase Full Of Cash
by possibly noteworthy at 7:41 am EDT, May 6, 2010

danah boyd:

When you think about Facebook, the market has very specific incentives: Encourage people to be public, increase ad revenue. All sorts of other things will happen from there.

Bill Gurley:

Customers seem to really like free as a price point. I suspect they will love "less than free."

Josh Harris:

Everything is free, except the video that we capture of you. That we own.


Big Data is made of people.


Money for me, databases for you.

Michael Osinski:

Oyster farmers eat lots of oysters, don't they?

Denton Gentry:

We might recoil from this, but I suspect it is not something which can be stopped. The technology has reached the point where these things are feasible, and there is a huge economic incentive to do so. A concerted effort to stop it results in the technology being less visible, not absent.


All the time you spend tryin to get back what's been took from you there's more goin out the door. After a while you just try and get a tourniquet on it.

Libby Purves:

There is a thrill in switching off the mobile, taking the bus to somewhere without CCTV and paying cash for your tea. You and your innocence can spend an afternoon alone together, unseen by officialdom.

Erasing David:

David Bond lives in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear, a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy and the loss of it.

Cordelia Dean:

There are those who suggest humanity should collectively decide to turn away from some new technologies as inherently dangerous.

Marc Lacey:

In other words, there has to be a line people will not cross, even for a suitcase full of cash.
