MyData Internals

Last week a discussion started if the Greetbot and introductions should move to a separate channel and this Monday an anonymous poll was held: 21 were in favour, 4 against it. So @Viivi is now making the necessary changes.

This week I start collecting information in the Apps & Services section. After being interviewed by @Kata about MyData's Vision of Success 2022 and also reading a question from @apoikola I sense that a catalog for the Personal Data Ecosystem is really necessary. There are a few ideas I have about how this can develop and right now it is just a simple list of apps mentioned on Slack. Stay tuned for upcoming changes and don't hesitate to let me know what you think: write me at mdwd@ownyourdata.eu
