Get to Know Me: Data, Personalization, and Privacy

Fight #5 of Digital Fight Club puts Andy Chen, SVP of +1 Labs at Match Group, and Mike Orren, chief product officer at The Dallas Morning News and president at Belo Business Intelligence, against each other.

Editor’s note: Dallas Innovates is the media sponsor for Digital Fight Club on Aug. 28. Digital Fight Club is a no-holds-barred event that pits technology experts against each other in a head-to-head, rapid-fire discussion on a hot-button topic rooted in innovation. Read the story of how it came to be here.

And, before the main event at the end of the month, Founder Michael Pratt will be previewing what audience members can expect each round. Fight #5 is below.


Our final fight will be near and dear to everyone’s heart: personal data and privacy.

Unless you made like Fight #3 and completely disconnected your life from all forms of technology, this applies to you.

How do we find peace with the tension between your privacy rights and the great things companies can do for consumers by using our data to drive better experiences?

Andy Chen and Mike Orren are both sitting on a treasure trove of consumer data. They don’t see eye to eye on what to do with it.
