Online Privacy And The Concept Of "Data Dividend"


We like our time on the Web, but there's a near-constant concern about what we give, in addition to what we get.  At this point, we give away our data, unless we're extremely cautious. 

In February, California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed a "data dividend," in which people would get paid for surrendering their data online.  Details have yet to be worked out. 

But the Center for Digital Democracy has some ideas about privacy and the appropriate uses of our personal information.  Executive Director Jeffrey Chester visits to talk about current issues and ideas.
