We're tackling big topics at Strata, but none bigger than data ownership

posted via Alistair Croll | @acroll

If we live in an information age, then whoever owns the information wins. But information wants to be free: when I share a phone number, it becomes more valuable, not less so. The Wikileaks controversy has pushed data ownership to the front of public discourse: to whom do the cables belong? What liabilities do journalists, students, or government employees incur by looking at them? And where does international law stand on open information?

At Strata, insiders on all sides of the debate will be discussing issues of data privacy, governance, and data ownership. Data is the fuel of the next decade of commerce, but we're only now deciding who can use that fuel, what they can charge for it, and how it's controlled

Speakers who will be discussing data ownership at Strata include:
