Quoting from a paper I am reading: "Humanity is facing a fundamental information bottleneck that overwhelms cognitive capabilities inherited from 160 million years of mammalian evolution". I like this style.

We need to move on from the days of health systems storing and owning all our health data. Patients should be the owners of their own medical data. It’s an entitlement and civil right that should be recognized.

What’s the solution? For starters, disaggregation, meaning that medical data should be stored in individual or family units rather than in centralized databases. Such a regime would return the data to the person who should own it in the first place: the patient.

In 2016, I played a bit with #stocks #trading as a hobby. I put aside some a small amount to experiment and, at the end of the year, I increased the amount by 50%. I didn't really invest all of it (I kept some spare for the right occasion), and I did a couple of things wrong (meaning, hitting the wrong button on the web platform!). Plus, I am not an expert at all, confusing stocks, trackers and I don't even know what to do with options (I probably spent 5 min. per day or less on this).
But anyway, I kept one risky position (so it could be 30 or 70 instead of 5o pretty soon), the rest is relatively safe, and in slight red.
I am curious to see what I will post end of the year. Perhaps I'll be back at the initial amount ;)
