Out of numerous technological advances and inventions, the two of them stand out tremendously in a scale of the effect they had on today’s world: computer and data network. Computers are present in just about every aspect of our life. From the simple task of switching the traffic light, to the complex calculations of the spacecraft trajectories – computers restlessly work night and day, helping human beings achieve never before seen levels of efficiency and productivity. The ability to collect, sort and store huge amounts of data enabled rapid development of all branches of science, which in turn sped up technological progress even more.

n this brief essay I present a metric suitable for addressing the hypothesis that “individual privacy has been eroding since the advent of the second Industrial Revolution.” By “second Industrial Revolution” I understand to be the period of 1860—1900, where many new technologies, including electricity, were invented.
The metric I propose is to measure the number of “private data records” that exist for a particular individual, i.e. that contain information that the individual would consider to…
