Trade in Your Browsing Data for a Fair Share of Prizes
The Big Data band lets you give up your browsing privacy for real rewards, perhaps teaching you a lesson about our double-edged relationship with tech in the process
The Big Data band and Basura New York have created a web app that lets you “sell” your browsing history, cookies and other private information for a chance to win rewards. The project is called Nice 2 Hack You and to qualify, just share your sensitive information to your social accounts.
Nice 2 Hack You works best with Google Chrome and requires a two-month history on your computer. Using algorithms, it will generate a result like the one above featured at the very top to showcase the information you’d otherwise love to keep private.
