The average person isn’t aware of how much data they’re shedding.
Collectively, our homes are starting to produce digital emissions, which includes all the data not actively used and processed by devices. Bits of information in that network include things like your body temperature as you watch TV, the ambient hums and creaks that your home makes at night, and the communication pings your devices make.
Digital emissions aren’t harmful to the environment, but they’re an untapped resource to be mined and analyzed—with transparency and permissions, of course.
