I'm pretty much a Big Data glutton. I give away all of my data with both hands. I don't even know how to turn on incognito mode on any of my devices. I try to have as many services connected as possible, preferably on the same platform. I got angry at google when it wasn't properly tracking every footstep I took.

I do not really see any benefit in suppressing my data. In fact, I pity the NSA for having to store all of my garbage data. I don't think any of my garbage data can really hurt me, my life is way too boring anyway.

So instead I try to benefit off of Big Data as much as possible. I appreciate targeted ads and enjoy all of the smart features that are able to predict and remember things thanks for my generous data input. My Youtube Music Mixtapes are just great and all thanks to google knowing my music habits.

I've tried to argue with privacy obsessed people but they could never give me a straight answer, which leads me to believe that privacy is mostly an emotional issue rather than something rational.

It still makes me feel a bit weird also considering that I work as an IT security expert.
