Will there ever be a point at which our data accurately and completely defines us? How much of it would there have to be in order for our true essence to be captured in columns and rows? Is such a thing even possible? Data is like a new kind of nuclear waste. It doesn’t really ever go away and once it has amassed in great quantities for which we have no use, it is left to one side on servers and drives. We are always making more of it.
Fascinating ideas and ones I have been thinking of a lot lately.
