Introduction

Topic Overview

Imagine a world where you forgo any plausible claim to privacy by paying for-profit companies in other lands to collect and analyse your personal data. Imagine further that the means with which said companies acquire your data is through a portable computer bristling with sensors that you literally wear on your body, most of the time. The portable device, communication and data services are so important to your life that you’re driven half mad with worry and misery when parted just for a short period. Welcome to the reality of 21st century mobile telephony, where everyone lifelogs into their very own portable telescreen.
