The most irritating thing about data mining (besides the whole right-to-privacy thing) is knowing that people are trading data about me for profit and I don't get a cut.

Alas. I guess that's why Facebook and Twitter are free.

Whoops, about to slip down...

It was inevitable that these gigantic piles of information would be subjected to data mining.

OTOH - if you take a pile of garbage, make it a bigger pile of garbage, it is still a pile of garbage. I mean Sarah Palin posts on Twitter. So how far would you believe the results of any data mining here.

Which of course, beyond the need to have an opinon of everything, is the news medias insistance on the "man on the street" interviews or the unverifiable poll - these tell us what to think even though they are usually totally bogus.

That's why my dog is on Facebook, and not me. ;^)
