A Cookie for Your Data?
DataCafe.biz exhibition seeks to assign value to data that you give away every day to collectors like Facebook
How much value do you assign to your status updates on Facebook? If you’re like most people, you probably don’t even think about it. That’s why Parsons School of Design students Chris Fussner, Sophia Callahan, Noah Emrich and Henry Lam created DataCafe.biz. A real-time exhibition presented at New York City’s NYCxDesign last May, the cafe’s goal was to get people thinking about the value of personal data by instructing them to exchange a piece of data for a homemade cookie.
