Primer iz The New York Times: " I hadn’t realized, however, that when I had entered my information into the pregnancy app, the company would then share it with marketing groups targeting new mothers. Although I logged my miscarriage into the app and stopped using it, that change in status apparently wasn’t passed along. Seven months after my miscarriage, mere weeks before my due date, I came home from work to find a package on my welcome mat. It was a box of baby formula bearing the note: “We may all do it differently, but the joy of parenthood is something we all share.” "

Big data in slovenska javna uprava Kvantificirjanje dela javnih uslužbencev v SLO, katere logika v ozadju je: “glede na to, da ste v državnih službah, ste po defaultu zabušanti, paraziti, zelo verjetno je, da obstajajo še rezerve, da bi naredili več, hitreje in učinkoviteje”. Gotovo so tudi taki... Big data se lepo ujema z logiko izžemanja.
