Democratisation of data

Democratisation of data

I love your idea of Democratizing data. Unfortunately data is as much a commodity as oil. You need to invest huge amount of capital to dig,collect,mine it enough to achieve the economy of scale. In that sense, Democratizing data is much like Democratizing oil. The king of capital of the world won’t allow that sort of things to happen. Indeed Democratizing capital-intensive commodity is anti-capitalism, anti-market,or maybe anti-democracy since democracy is unmanageable enterprise without market economy. There goes our utopia of Democratizing data.
