Loosing out on the path of freedom

Reactions: 
Who pays for your phone?
You.
Unless its gifted or won in sweepstake.

Who pays for the internet or the data plan?
You.
Unless you can somehow get through so many wifi routers broadcasting/screaming, come ride on me.

Who collects the data?
Mobile Apps.
Websites.

What data they collect?

  1. who are you?
  2. where are you?
  3. what are you doing?
Who is paying them to collect your whereabouts?
You.

Who is making money? 
They.
AArgh. How come there is no "You" here. 

How did it happen?
How did you missed the when it was rising?
How did you fall into the "free" trap? 

When a book is published the creator/author gets commission on every sale. 
When a meal is ordered the owner gets part of the whole as profit. 

You are the owner of your coordinates. You are the author of your life story. 
Why don't you get paid for it?
Why don't you get commission for it?

How can we claim back the privacy? How can we protect so that no more cheating happens in the name of free service?

Are you just a data point?
And pay to be one?
