Süddeutsche Zeitung complains that data are permanently stored but never deleted. Even my irrelevant newsgroup comments have been stored (for 14 years) although they have never been intended to a larger audience. As humans we have no built-in timescale and are not particular good in judging the context of any data. This might be the reason according to SZ that Victor Mayer-Schönberger argues for meta-data when data should be deleted. I agree on this proposal and want this blog entry to be deleted until 16-May-2008 12:00:00 from any server in any world, yea, yea.
