    I kinda know how this is going to go before I post it but I thought this was interesting.  So I know how everyone feels about telemetry.  Here’s the ULTIMATE telemetry:

    Tracking yourself.

    Australia is rolling out an app that uses bluetooth to track your proximity with others to show your risk of COVID-19.  China even has a tracking app that sounds even more impactful big brotherish.

    So what do you think?  Would you use it?  Are you using it?  IDG’s techtalk talks about what the apps do and what the intent is.

    If you want a big under the hood review of the Australian app, check out this twitter thread.
