@thegibson Short of "capitalism" as one other response gave.
1) The entire business model of gifting some service to a consumer in hopes that you can than monetize them through data extraction/influencing (or also by extracting VC funding until FAANG buys you to get your data... but that's the same thing). This business model should be as illegal as running a pyramid scheme.
2) Not sure, because I don't really have the time to sit around and audit what every company is doing with my data. I'd like to see privacy policies that accurately describe the exact usage of any data I provide to a company, and I would like to see an independent entity audit these companies to confirm that the data is being used according to the policy and in no other way and suitably ring the alarms when a company isn't or won't give them sufficient access to prove this case. This would be particularly hard, since we also need to trust that the auditor themselves isn't using the audit to extract data for nefarious means -- somehow needs to be a firewall between them and the state without making the auditor toothless.
If I delete my post, I want all ML models derived from it by anybody gone, too. I want to be able to define bulk data revocation at any level of granularity, from broad time ranges and categories down to elaborate transitive queries in a well supported language such as GraphQL.
