I got to know Deborah when she was moderating a panel I appeared on at the Open Data Center Alliance's Forecast 2012 event. It's taken me an embarrassingly long time to get this podcast scheduled and recorded but I hope you'll agree it was worth the wait. This is an important topic but one that is, unfortunately, often poorly served by shallow or sensationalistic stories, blog posts, and papers. Deborah, on the other hand, takes us systematically through the legal issues associated with data at each point in its collection or use and offers lots of great, practical advice.
In this podcast, she talks about legal issues related to data, "big" and otherwise, and how concerns can be managed with the proper education and the proper teamwork between your legal counsel and your technology folks.
