Personal Data is You

Personal Data

“Personal data isn’t property.

It’s people.

It’s as much a part of you as your eye color, the way your heart calms when you see beauty, and your world view.

It may not be inside your skin but that doesn’t make it any less you.

It’s you.

It is you moving through time and space. It’s you in action and asleep. It’s you interacting with people. It’s you thinking aloud and witnessing the world. It’s your backup brain, your legacy, your self.

It’s you. ”

Phil Wolff
