FROM INDIA BUT VALID IN ALL PLACES A couple of years ago, a group of feminists got together at Barnard College to discuss ways of raising funding for the work put in by feminist bloggers and writers on the internet.

Courtney Martin and Vanessa Valenti, the conveners of the meeting , said that their objective was to provide a greater voice to minorities . "Women of colour and other groups are already overlooked for adequate media attention and already struggle disproportionately in this culture of scarcity," they wrote.
On the face of it, Courtney and Valenti's objective seems well intentioned."They weren't prepared , though, for the wave of coruscating anger and contempt that greeted their work. Online, the Barnard group - nine of whom were women of colour - was savaged as a cabal of white opportunists... There was fury expressed on behalf of everyone whose concerns were not explicitly addressed," writes Michelle Goldberg at TheNation. com.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
