Author Marcus Wigan expands on his article "Big Dataís Big Unintended Consequences" and discusses how businesses and governments exploit big data without regard for issues of legality, data quality, disparate data meanings, and process quality. This often results in poor decisions, with individuals bearing the greatest risk. The threats harbored by big data extend far beyond the individual, however, and call for new legal structures, business processes, and concepts such as a Private Data Commons. Interview conducted by Katina Michael of the University of Wollongong, from Computer's June 2013 issue: http://www.computer.org/csdl/mags/co/2013/06/index.html.
