Firehose API vs The Privacy of Everyone
Making a Dismal Future Harder To Achieve

Data collection is the process of gathering and measuring information on variables of interest, in an established systematic fashion that enables one to answer stated research questions, test hypotheses, and evaluate outcomes. The data collection component of research is common to all fields of study including physical and social sciences, humanities, business, etc. While methods vary by discipline, the emphasis on ensuring accurate and honest collection remains the same.
The importance of ensuring accurate and appropriate data collection
Regardless of the field of study or preference for defining data (quantitative, qualitative), accurate data collection is essential to maintaining the integrity of research. Both the selection of appropriate data collection instruments (existing, modified, or newly developed) and clearly delineated instructions for their correct use reduce the likelihood of errors occurring. – Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) website at Northern Illinois University

Here’s some eye-watering connectivity for some of you – 23andme is closing access to everything but its reports for developers who have relied on streams of data about self test DNA users. What some users (and non-users) may have overlooked is the information submitted would affect the data collection of everyone in their family. Family members are connected through DMV records, electric bills, through Facebook profiles, through college classmate websites – if motivated marketers, et al, really wanted to find connections, people harvesting big data have loads of resources.

There’s a wide, wide array of resources available to figure out the networks even of people who choose not to participate in social networks.

SBCe got heavy, heavy! – Let’s keep this light; remember that information governance (IG) is something that you can do and practice on a person to person basis too. You can establish in safe ways how much information you give out about yourself; how much information you give out about others; how much information do you seek about others? – or – Do you gush, do you gossip, are you nosey?

And those are three key points that, once defined in person to person levels, can be re-shuffled and harvested for person to website dynamics and shuffled and harvested even further for website to website dynamics as relates to information sharing. The day of the firehose is coming to an end. The need for privacy will, thankfully it seems, outweigh the marketer’s perceived freedom to access endless amounts of data that firehose API’s deliver.
