What this article describes is VRM.
Innocent people are unaware of the value of their data. Our business is designed to inform the public of this value and act as a third party on their behalf to leverage its value and redistribute it in proportion to the amount of it they volunteer.
I'm sure we aren't the only business in the world working to such an agenda.

I have often thought that games are a great way to educate and influence kids. This post just confirms it for me.
Helping children to learn new behaviours is on everyone's agenda - from business across to government. Using rewards to incentivise their behaviour is the answer - prevention is cheaper than cure (take obesity as an example).
At MyHomeTown we want to create a database for communities which they will own and control individually. Based around a local community eg MyManchester.com we think we can create a people platform that puts the power back in the hands of the people. Volunteered Personal Information (or VRM) hasn't really taken off yet, but when it does we want to be rready and waiting with a model that streamlines local markets and ploughs money back into local economies.
Somewhere amongst it all is a game. I haven't yet found the answer but i am still searching. And the more you and other brain-boxes go on about it the more i search.
If you or anyone reading this mail wants to know more about MyHomeTown, and how it can change the world positively, then mail me at [email protected] - i would appreciate whatever help i can get to use information to benefit the people, and NOT (just) government and def NOT (just) business. On the basis that they ain't narrowing the gap between rich and poor i think we should have a go.
Great businesses don't just break the rules they transform them. This could be a "game-changer" if we all put our minds to it.
Please, somebody, get in touch and ask for my FAQ's doc.
