Now, each time you visit a new site, an audience analytics company drops a cookie that will record every move on every site, from each of your devices. Chances are your browsing patterns will be stable (basically your favorite media diet, plus or minus some services that are better fitted for a mobile device.) Not only your browsing profile is determined from your navigation on a given site, but it is also quite easy to know which sites you have been to before the one that is currently monitored, adding further precision to the measurement.

So, this dude doesn’t like the fact that his digital data is now a commodity sold by companies without him seeing a penny of the profit. So, he’s decided to record and sell all of his digital data himself. For $2 a day or $50 a month, you get to see everything this dude does online. He’s going to try to make apps so that you can record and sell your data, too.

A co-worker just showed me this amazing website. www.thebuild.com. It’s a full-screen short film about three guys who custom build motorbikes in Portland, Oregon.
Aside from the stunning aesthetics, the cool thing about this is the interactivity. At any point, you can pause the film and the site offers you the opportunity to screen-shot or share that frame. You see some statistics and a little graph showing how many other people paused and grabbed at that point.
There are also several points where you can move around and explore inside frames. I suggest checking it out.

vivekpreddy asked: You and the Atlantic miss another major point in regards to Google Maps. When Project Glass is fully launched, Google will have true means to crowdsource imagery of everywhere, including inside buildings. They're deriving meaning from the physical world in much the same way that they derived meaning of the web with the original Google Search, and Glass will give them a gigantic barrier to entry to the project, allowing them to impact mobile in brand new ways. How will Google not win this battle?
