metadata

I admit that I am new to the metadata world, but if this article is accurate, I think I know a lot more than I did yesterday about the subject.

Of all the stuff on metadata I've seen in the past few weeks, this is my favorite:

This is my (Gmail) life.


immersion.mit.media.edu
It's my favorite in large part because it's my metadata. It comes from my Gmail account. The relationships it maps are, more or less, my life orange circles for Planet Money, purple for Brooklyn, brown for college. The big red circle that gets cut off at the bottom of the screengrab is my mom.
The picture shows just how revealing metadata can be. Without knowing anything about the content of my emails, you can paint a pretty complete picture of my personal and professional universe.

Here is another example of how revealing metadata can be. This is the data from a german politician who obtain 6 months of his own data from T-mobile. He then had it published in this nice graphical display.

If you have agreed to share information with a third party, then you have no reasonable expectation of privacy.

Smith vs Maryland http://supreme.justia.com/cases/fede.../735/case.html
United States vs Miller http://www.oyez.org/cases/1970-1979/1975/1975_74_1179/

Such sharing may be explicit, as by signing that contract with a cellular phone company to get teh shiny, shiny new phone, or clicking "I agree" to that hundred page legal tome iTunes presents you with on updating or installing. It may be implicit, as when you key in a telephone number on equipment attached to the apparatus provided by a third party (the telephone system).

Remember this when you click 'I Agree' on that shiny new XBox One (with built-in microphone and camera) after you set it up in your living room, or that cool new Internet-connected Samsung TV with speech and gesture recognition when you install it in your bedroom. (And you didn't even question just how the gesture recognition works, or why it only works when the TV has an Internet connection?) But not to worry! Microsoft says the XBox can be configured for privacy, so it won't watch or listen to you until you say "XBox on!" Um...

Happy Goldfish Bowl, everyone!
