I’ve been banging the data dividends drum ever since I joined Medium. It is great to hear it coming from some other folks at last. I think governments have only a limited ability to be able to deliver it though. The data exploitation companies and platforms are global. The only people-centered solutions that can respond are non-profit distributed ledger based platforms, because these are uniquely suited to the direct monetisation of data, and are worldwide, and user owned, transcending geographic politics.
