Preemptive data collection is the activity of grabbing and storing all the
data that belongs to you, and even
adding more data to it. That's possible when you're working with a datastore you own and therefore thrust.
While waiting for regulations, and hoping for a solution to the
difficult problem of limiting the influence of Big Tech to
acceptable proportions, it's better to take a radical step.
Actually, all we can do now is getting ready to take a radical step, in the future. Quitting Big Tech
will never be easy, but it will be impossible
without having a proper dataset to start with.
Storage location of data-set:

Expand your dataset with additional 'soft' data entries:
Include data from these sources:
SELF PROVIDED DATA

CONNECTED WEARABLES (NONE)
HOW TO BE PREPARED FOR THE ERA OF AR GLASSES?
With the smartphones in our pockets people have turned into semi-digital beings. We have become entities in in a hybrid universe in which online, offline, virtual and physical realities are merging. But the influence of digital technology on our daily life will even increase radically once we start wearing AR devices.
We'll end up in a radical new universe when we are going to wear AR glasses that will
observe what we do and see, in order to provide us with the most relevant information and guidance. Still, this development is in its infancy. Existing AR examples are often straightforward telepresence or helper apps for office or industry workers. But how will these devices enhance our own personal life? We don't know yet. Big Tech doesn't know yet. But they're not sitting still. And neither should we.
To be prepared for this unknown future, some things could be done right now. As explained in this article.
For now, the result is this checklist that helps to figure our if you're ready to Be Your Own Robot, whenever that may happen:
Arrange private and safe XXL data storage
Download our data from cloud services you're using
Wipe that online data
