The project examined social and policy implications of emerging models of sharing and ownership, in relation to the use of personal data & biodata. It focused on a) user practices and b) online service provision models  of personal data analytics and self-tracking. It involved interviews and participant observation with specific Silicon Valley internet start-ups & Quantified Self actors in the San Francisco area. The project was attached to a research placement at the Science and Justice Research Center, University of Santa Cruz, in Spring 2014.
