@TimOnTwtr I think you’ll find it’s not actually a government program.

@Xavier_Ho Excellent. Thank you. I shall share with only my closest and most intimate friends.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho It was so fucking normal it got married and had 2.3 children by the time it was 25.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho Yeah, different for different people and different life stages. We were hunting for long-term patterns. YMMV, youngster.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho Heh. That said, it was bloody handy the other day for my GP to have 20 years of my data available to him. Shrug.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho Hey, if there’s nothing f future medical value to you that can’t be replicated with some fresh pathology, fair enough.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho It’s an issue that’s vexed privacy advocates for decades.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@Xavier_Ho Yep, because under law the owner of a dataset is the person who created it, not the person it’s about.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Xavier_Ho

@kayschubach @broomstick33 Ah yes, the things you do on a workday that you can pretend isn’t.

@SnarkyPlatypus This would also mean she has an annoying basketball-obsessed brother.

@SnarkyPlatypus How would she have time to do her vampire stuff, what with homework and private tuition?

@NicoleWill100 Note even remotely. And I think I am grateful for that.

@ForsakenDAemon @jeamland Heh. It can certainly be written that way. Perl style just reflects the character of the programmer. ;)

@DavidParis @SnarkyPlatypus Opinions differ as to how serious their plans were, but yes.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidParis

@ForsakenDAemon @jeamland All the “human-readable Perl” I’ve seen is just bloated crap that Ada or Java programmers have to put up with.

@SnarkyPlatypus @DavidParis WA has so much sandy desert, you could nuke it and turn it into artisanal glass for the high-end art market.
