That's a twist of a clever phrase that our own Thom Lytle used to describe our increasing participation in sensor networks of all kinds.
In a world of big data analytics, what we think, what we do, how we behave -- are incredibly valuable inputs. There's a powerfully strong incentive to capture our digital exhaust as we move through life.
In so many of these models, there's no practical way anyone can opt out. We're increasingly being sensored whether we approve or not.
Not to be overly negative, but there's scant chance of our legal systems ever hoping to catch up to where technology has so quickly brought us.
So I believe the topic of "sensorship" -- our willing and increasingly unwilling participation in data gathering exercises -- is going to be an important one.
