General comments for this week:

Happy 10th anniversary MyData Weekly Digest! Thanks for the feedback and support I received so far and expect some exciting updates soon...

MyData is gearing up to prepare the yearly conference and there were discussions about AI and startups. And since there were no apps mentioned this week, I found an old post about digi.me and introduce it this week.

Make AI optional?  show on Slack
