In a World of Data, Who am I?

During my fellowship, I propose an empirical study that considers to what degree we consider our location-connected data as part of our self identity. The answer to this first question will inform the second, which is establishing when use of the data crosses the line from acceptable to unacceptable. My training in philosophy as well as quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, offers the possibility of asking some very big questions but generating detailed answers. The results will help map the terrain for many ethical questions emerging from geospatial technologies.
