Sorry, there may not be an app for that

I remember speaking with Evgeny Morozov a few years back. What a genuine nice guy. Since then he's become one of the most intelligent and constructive critiques of Silicon Valley that I know. He's better than Andrew Keen because he keeps it fresh. This presentation was given a few days ago in Munich at DLD. Note the comments about Google about 9 minutes in. Google is moving into miltary robotics and finance! After all, Google have the best data to assess your potential to repay the loans or become a super insurance company. After all, they would know the temperature in the house through their acquisition of NEST smart thermostats.

Expect an app on your mobile phone to trade your data in real time. So what is the agenda for solving these problems? Snowdon has provided a lot of outrage, but we need to figure out what to do with it.
