A document is “anything on which information of any kind is recorded”. That used to mean paper, then electronic documents - emails, Word files and the like - which were recognisable as documents. Now we have messages exchanged via WhatsApp, Snap, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and others. We create data which does not have any obvious text - photographs, videos, audio files - and send that to each other. Our devices may track our every move and some apps, and websites store that data. Beyond that we have data being created about us by others or by semi-autonomous machines; some of that sits in our homes and offices; some is captured by CCTV or telephone recordings.
