so what happened when Malte Spitz asked his cell phone carrier what it knew about him?

What kind of data is your cell phone company collecting? Malte Spitz wasn’t too worried when he asked his operator in Germany to share information stored about him. Multiple unanswered requests and a lawsuit later, Spitz received 35,830 lines of code -- a detailed, nearly minute-by-minute account of half a year of his life.

A great TED video - I also enjoyed the comments however I am remain concerned that at there are two camps on all of this material.... like, engage, find value, embrace, change, acceptance and the other side privacy, hate, wrong, misplaced, worried, FUD.
