I found this line of inquiry meaningful in that it brings up questions in the themes of privacy, quantified self, and machine perception, and further adds to the ongoing discourse about data collection from these large companies. What I found most interesting was the other student’s projects dealing with the same sort of issues, but manifesting in different ways of visualizing and interacting with the same data. Given more time, I would be curious to dive deeper into visualizing some of the data provided back by the companies, as well as find ways of maybe scoring the data that is actually given and the companies usability for requesting that data. In terms of feasibility, I think this project is definitely something that could be built, given the relative simplicity of the files produced by the requests for data.
