What would a city made up of completely accessible data be? How would the citizens of that city be made to interact with data if this was the case?

When presented with the concept of “Scarcity to Abundance”, the mind jumps to the overwhelming amounts of data produced on a day to day basis by the individual, and the inaccessibility to a large amount more of data produced. But what would happen if you had access to all data ever produced? What would the world look like if the individual moved in a world where even the currency relied on the potential data you would produce in the future? Data City, the infrastructure and the institutions imagined in this potential “space” take into account the possible responsibilities and possible laws that an individual would have to follow were they to enter the “Data City”.
