The Downside of Data Mining

Hosted by

Whatever you do on line — from filling out forms to making innocent requests for information — is subject to data mining.  That can lead to unflattering profiles or put you on lists that can be damaging — even though the data is often wrong. We hear calls for transparency and regulation.

Also, what's ahead for the fight over minimum wage? On today's Talking Point, the tiny, tech-savvy country of Estonia is the first nation to establish digital citizenship — with an ID that can help you file tax returns, authenticate e-mails and cast your vote for elected offices.  We talk to a man who has one.
