Data colonies

The nature of data are changing

And so are the methods of data gathering.

In this digital era,

Not only our personal information are accumulated, with or without consent

But our behavioral patterns, thought processes, etc.

are tracked, documented and exploited.

Benefits of the digital technology are immense

And we happen to be incidental beneficiaries

Yet the world is set to be ruled by those

Who hold these data repositories.

Data colonies are being created

These colonies may appear ‘virtual’.

However, this data imperialism is ‘real’.
