Meta Data

Interactive Map

Link to Zeit Online article containing interactive map that shows how a person with a smart phone can be traced. Way cool.

When viewing the map above it almost seems like it could be part of a James Bond movie where “M” is tracking Bond and figuring out which beer hall he’s flirting in. I’m not sure what I find more interesting. The shear amount of information that can be gathered to track someone or how it is put together to illustrate the effectiveness of meta data.

Welcome to your future.
