Devil wears data

I never guess. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

Kahneman (
The availability heuristic is a psychological term that describes the human tendency to estimate the frequency of an event by using the examples that come most readily to mind. As psychologist Daniel Kahneman—who coined the term with his research partner, Amos Tversky—recalls in Thinking, Fast and Slow:
Amos and I wondered about the rate of divorce among professors in our university. We noticed that the question triggered a search of memory for divorced professors we knew or knew about, and that we judged the size of the categories by the ease with which instances came to mind. We called this reliance on the ease of memory search the availability heuristic.

Who does the data belong to ?—-Knowledge-and-Information-Technology—-No–123.html?soid=1102594616158&aid=mQ9u233XySQ
Orkut, created in 2004 by a Google employee, was one of the earlier social networks, a contemporary of Facebook. With Google trying to create traction for Google+, and Orkut only retaining significant popularity in two countries, Brazil (where it is hosted) and India, it was inevitable that Google would pull the plug, and it finally did. As of today, no new accounts can be opened and users have three months to export their data and migrate to another network.
The story is fairly unremarkable except for reinforcing some recurrent points. First, who does the data belong to? Second, there are no social media standards to ease the migration of one’s profile data across networks (a form of “cloud provider lock-in,” a subject well known in the cloud standards community). Third, the providers will argue that we shouldn’t have any expectations from a free service. (But is this really free, given the barrage of ads that allow the providers to make money?)
While the move makes sense for Google, it will be interesting to see who the users migrate to. Instead of moving to Google+, they may decide to join Facebook (chances are, most of them already use it too).
