For those of you tracking the relationship between big data and privacy, some recent developments will be of interest.
Last June, Commissioner Julie Brill from the Federal Trade Commission gave a speech about Reclaim Your Name, focusing on data brokers.
Since then, as reported in The New York Times, data broker Axciom has launched a web portal, Aboutthe Data.com, which would enable consumers to access data held by Axciom and even correct it.
However, Axciom is still ironing out the wrinkles in its portal, as it seems that some users have not been able to log in.
In the meantime, Commissioner Brill will give a lecture on the issue at NYU Poly/Sloan Institute in Brooklyn on October 23. Attendance to this event will be free, and the details can be found here.
