Crafting an asset-based privacy policy

In a number of previous posts, I’ve made the point that we need to treat personal data as an intangible assets. Now, that same point is being made by others — including Professor Alex (Sandy) Pentland at the MIT Media Lab. He was recently quoted as commenting that “Your data becomes a new asset class, you have more control over the information, and it becomes your most lucrative asset.”
I understand that Professor Pentland is working with groups to craft policies treat personal information as an asset. I will report back later on where these efforts stand.
