The challenge for all of us is to figure out how this data that could be beneficial to scientists and society in general can be made available in ways that would be safe for the people providing the data and safe for the companies
Whether or not Apple responded specifically to Hoefer’s campaign, it’s clear the company caved to widespread pressure from customers. Complaints about the noisy machines lit up many a website, newsgroup and discussion forum, including Apple’s own tech info forums.

The cascade of privacy scandals that have come to light in recent years—from Cambridge Analytica to Google’s shady location tracking practices—have demonstrated that users still don’t know all the ways their information is being sold, traded, and shared.

Dubey remembers the last mela, 12 years ago, when computers were not there. “Before, only very few people would have that printed chart. I would have to draw out most of them myself,” he said. “When I came here this year and found out that there are computers here that can make it, I began to tell all my children (his customers) to go and get it done there and then return to me. It is a good thing the government has done.”
Elizabeth’s navy was well-known for its lethal gunnery. Their reputation was not enough to deter Philip II of Spain from sending his “Invincible Armada” against them in 1588, with disastrous results for the Spanish. The defeat of the Armada marked the rise of a new naval power that was to dominate the oceans for almost three centuries… apart from the odd unfortunate incident. Or two.
WN: Down the road, can you imagine a scenario where established filmmakers build a direct-to-audience market? So Spike Lee or Jim Jarmusch could pre-sell new films to their fans and make their budget?
