Holy moly, some will be paying MIT $75.000 for learning techniques on how to hunt us down.

Sir, Adam Jones writes that some “will pay $75,000 in tuition fees for their Master of Business Analytics degree, with “Applied Probability”, “MIT’s $75,000 finishing school for Big Data” March 21.

And Jake Cohen, senior associate dean for MIT Sloan undergraduate and masters programs says: “The return on investment we expect to be very high [for those who take the course]”

That is more than clear evidence that we, the hunted, the main suppliers of “Big Data”, need to urgently defend ourselves.

Before these hunting licenses are awarded, we should get a copyright over our own personal preferences and lives, so to at least have something to negotiate with.
