Living without google….or almost

One of the first victims of my desire to regain control over my digital life is Google. Living without Google, possible?

Paradoxically, it is not the worst in terms of privacy since the company has put in place rather effective (albeit somewhat hidden) systems for managing its personal data.

No, Google’s real problem among the GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon) is the scope of the services it offers. It covers far too many aspects of my life to allow one company to possess all this data. As I said, I don’t use Facebook, Apple has little information about me about Amazon, it’s more complicated, I’ll have to look into it…

We need to clean up!

Out of lethargy

Itoubib had been asleep for almost 6 years. Normally, I would have to look for explanations that would be confused with excuses. My last article was written in November 2012 while I was working abroad. A lot has changed in the last five years. A few moves later, we moved to the Paris region. For me, much less then gradually more consultations at all, more on-call duty in the emergency room, in short more medicine in contact with patients. I changed path to direct myself towards the project management of medical information systems. Finally, I made the connection between my skills as a doctor and my desire for digital. To come back to iToubib, it’s hard to get this experience into the blog as I originally imagined it (if you add that I’m hardly at Apple anymore…).

Then why are we relaunching it today?
