it was amazing

This book had some great insights on how our personal data can help us navigate our lives. He also added in Augmented Reality and how our data can be considered as "layers". The social equity aspect also intrigued me as much of our lives (data points) will be "tracked" and we will have a score. Much like Klout on steroids— our actions will leave a trail and we will have to manage our digital selves. Will our hidden lives (our decisions/data) hinder us or help us? This book brought up some great questions that the current laws aren't prepared to handle. I really enjoyed the conjectures he made and the cautions he brought up about managing our data and freeing it to the outside world.
