Unfortunately, we do not really have control on our data. Either we do not care about as the services provided by the data collectors are so convincing, that we do agree on handing over our data. Or, we do not have really time nor technical know-how to bring all our data together and use it on our own or provide it as a data donation for the common goods.
The same unfortunately holds true, for many public institutions. Over decades those public services were working as single units and their data, of great value for the public, wasn’t connected such, the value could be even more improved.
This is what we do care about.
