Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] What does that mean? Well, ask yourself: does it make sense for every company to become expert in "big data", finding out what people like, want, think, from their digital traces? Does it make sense for every online company to track past, current and future users online? Would that be cost-effective? Well, not necessarily. And that is why I am expecting new business models in this space. For example services that track and profile on the user's behalf and under the user's control; services that make information available, to advertisers and others, with the user's consent and yes, why not, for payment.
