Edited version of the talk (full screen slides).

In the digital age virtually everything we do is recorded, monitored or tracked in some way. Where will this lead us? What is to be done? Wolfie Christl's talks about a game, which promises to change the way we think about privacy and big data.

PERSONAL DATA IN THE DIGITAL AGE?
The quantity and the value of the many different types of personal data being collected is vast: our profiles and demographic data from bank accounts to medical records to employment data. Our Web searches, the sites we visited, our likes and dislikes and purchase histories. Our tweets, texts, emails, phone calls, photos and videos as well as the coordinates of our real-world locations. State-of-the-art information retrieval and data mining technologies help to analyze and combine these massive amounts of personal data. emerging businesses in social media and mobile applications increasingly make commercial use of the collected data.

COLLECTING, COLLATING & SELLING PERSONAL DATA
While popular self tracking services like Fitbit attempt to sell their tools to health insurance companies, leading old school data brokers like Acxiom or Lexis Nexis Risk Solutions try to link their hundreds of millions of detailed personal profiles with social content. Today´s everyday services relying on aggregated data are becoming more and more complex - even if they look simple on the surface. When we use information technology today it's more difficult than ever to estimate what the long-term consequences might be.

TEDxVienna | INSTANITY: EVERYTHING NOW | NOVEMBER 3, 2012
Derived from the words 'instant' and 'insanity', it symbolizes the spirit of our technologically minted times: everything now. In a single minute, we could cook a microwave meal, or snap and print a photo, gather all the necessary information at the press of a single button, and even control an avatar with our mere thoughts. Technological development has become instant, but could that drive us insane? How could a human brain whose developmental processes occur in phases understand and make the best use of technological achievements that have been exponentially growing at an amazingly fast rate? At our conference, we would like to spread the ideas of people who make this exponential development possible. At the same time, we would like to explore the boundaries that have been significantly shaken and pushed by the instant technological development; how technology re-shapes our human nature and how we learn to control for the risks that inevitably come with it.
