Provocating, amusing but also frightnening sense making analogy...

The temptation is strong to extend the analogy to the limits and say 
that the last decenny evolution of the Internet as an information 
ocean is the one from artesanal fisheries (with little harm to marine 
life) to industrial  fisheries (a terrible disaster for marine life 
e.g. our personal information) .... and big data fisheries (deep sea) 
a fatal situation for many species (e.g. a killer for our privacy).
