Liked I Do Not Own Kin Lane | Kin Lane (Kin Lane)

Audrey said something profound the other day which stuck with me. As we were talking about data and data ownership, she stated that, โ€œI do not own meโ€โ€”-pushing back on a common narrative around data ownership. Highlighting that conversations around the ownership of data are merely a dispossession vehicle for getting us to buy into concepts that you can own people. Muddying the water, and ultimately helping reducing humans to transactions. A photo taken by me or of me is not owned by me. It is me. There is no ownership of my physical or digital self. There is only me. I do not care if youโ€™ve managed to digitally reduce a piece of me to a transaction, it is still me.
