On top of that, sharing your medical data -as a patient- without consent, sounds like participating in a medical experiment, having no idea about it.
According to WSJ , Google gathers personal health data of millions of Americans. Under federal law, hospitals are allowed to share such data, as long as they are used to improve the health care functions and help the patients.

Industrialized Militaries Are a Bigger Part of the Climate Emergency Than You Know
"...we have been killing, dying, and polluting to ensure our access to the same toxic resource most responsible for our climate disruption."
Want to be in charge of a critical piece of software that runs on pretty much every linux desktop?
libinput is searching for people to eliminate the bus factor:
Would be great when such critical software parts wouldn't rely on the shoulders on a single person (not me).
