Time to regulate Big Data?

I had a conversation recently on this subject. As someone born and raised in a communist country, the perspective reality of having no control over what and who owns data about you is very concerning. Terrifying.

For years, data brokers have been collecting and selling billions of pieces of your personal information — from your income to your shopping habits to your medical ailments. Now federal regulators say it’s time you have more control over what’s collected and whether it will be used at all.

After reading this post I was close to cry finally. Then I’ve realized that this bill would need to pass first. And with the right lobbying that might actually never happen (as in “But so far Rockfeller’s bill has gone nowhere).
