Willkommen beim MyData Weekly Digest, einer Nachrichtenseite, die sich der bestmöglichen Berichterstattung innerhalb des menschen-zentrierten Ansatzes bei der Verwaltung personenbezogener Daten widmet. Es enthält Informationen, die seit Juni 2019 hauptsächlich aus dem MyData Global Slack Channel (in englischer Sprache) abgerufen wurden. Beiträge und Kommentare stammen vom jeweiligen Benutzer, der mit jedem Eintrag angegeben wird. MyData ist eine Idee und eine alternative Vision für den ethischen Umgang mit personenbezogenen Daten. Es ist gleichzeitig auch eine Bewegung, eine Gemeinschaft und eine globale gemeinnützige Organisation. Lies mehr darüber hier: https://mydata.org

OwnYourData und die MyData-Community teilen dieselben Werte für eine gerechte, nachhaltige und prosperierende digitale Gesellschaft. Weitere Informationen findest du im OwnYourData-Leitbild und eventuell möchtest du die MyData-Bewegung unterstützen. Wenn du Vorschläge zur Verbesserung hast, zögere nicht, uns zu kontaktieren: weekly-digest(at)ownyourdata.eu.

Bankrupt startup uBiome auctioned for 1% of its original valuation

What happens to personal data acquired during bankruptcy? My impression is that it's a mess, for all startup bankruptcies (not just this one). Firms that handle bankruptcies aren't remotely familiar with the tech, they don't know the difference between digital assets and office furniture.
I could speculate about security concerns, especially when assets are sold internationally... (and I've never seen anyone worried about this, which baffles me?)... the reality is probably the data almost always goes stale, becomes unreadable, and gets lost/forgotten.

Tools
Modular

Of potential interest because of use of Slack as a communication channel isn't ideal (it's closed source, proprietary software, and not end-to-end encrypted), but it has network effects & user-friendliness over other options: Mozilla is switching from IRC to Riot/Matrix, hosted by https://modular.im/ – pricing is $1.50 per active user.
