Human Beings or Data Source

Data Source vs Humans

Surprisingly where there is so much talk about customized offerings and personal touch, for firms and startups we are not a human being but a data source and we are treated in a similar way.
What website we clicked, what we are sharing on FB and twitter and many more data collection points that companies vouch can help in offering us just the perfect solution.
If a firm gathers my date of birth and starts offering me stuff based on my zodiac sign…how long would that sustain?
If really #datacollection have reached its heights of perfection in terms of customized offerings… I would like to see a mother-kid or father-kid relation growing with just the virtual connect…
The crux of the matter is..do not treat us as a data source…we are human beings…!

Could Blockchain Help Content Creators?

#Blockchain #Content
When content is used and translated to another language – does it refers to Plagiarism? Alternatively, it is merely Translation?
Similarly, if a music tune produced by guitar is then played via sitar. Would it sound the same or different? I feel except the sound the tune should be familiar … would that again be termed as #copied or #Plagiarized or not?

Is there a disconnect? While music is a universal language, the modes of producing it may differ and hence copying a tune raises the issue… on the other hand language is not universal thus copying same content and translating ina local language is not termed as Plagiarism…

Do you think #Blockchain could resolve an issue like that …could it make one copy of content[in words] and whether it is translated … only the first published text in a particular language stays as a master copy?
Anyone listening?

Why Banks Need to Be Centralized?

Unlike olden days when data/information was maintained in the ledgers and files, now data could be cryptic and stored on cloud servers. So, if the account information that was fed in ABC city, why that can’t be accessed from XYZ city?

Thanks to globalization that customer is not at “one place” now. Continue reading
