It was only a matter of time. A few years ago in Is BD, TMI? we wrote that eventually you’d be able to sell your private data and turn the tables on social-media companies. Datacoup is making good on that prediction. The whole point of private data is—it’s yours!

That relationship is fundamentally flawed, unsustainable, and soooo over.
