AB - We propose there is a need for a technical platform enabling people to engagewith the collection, management and consumption of personal data; and that thisplatform should itself be personal, under the direct control of the individualwhose data it holds. In what follows, we refer to this platform as the Databox,a personal, networked service that collates personal data and can be used tomake those data available. While your Databox is likely to be a virtualplatform, in that it will involve multiple devices and services, at least oneinstance of it will exist in physical form such as on a physical form-factorcomputing device with associated storage and networking, such as a home hub.
