    Agreement here: data collection and use is a profoundly good thing for consumers by providing relevant, timely and useful information, data collection and abuse is profoundly bad. There is a fine line to be struck here between allowing data collection for the correct purposes, whilst protecting against its abuse.

    Good post.

    On the one hand, there’s the EU cookie directive saying that cookies and data have to be more carefully managed and be more transparent (which is still causing a lot of webmasters and big firms a headache as they get to grips with the commercial ramifications) and on the other hand you have intelligence services pulling far more intrusive data from wherever they see fit. It seems a little unbalanced at the moment – very much a “Do as I say not as I do” system…
