Why are engineers and technologists running vaccination in #india @drharshvardhan @PMOIndia ? The #cowin portal leads to exclusion of those who don't have smart phones, aren't tech savvy, are women, have data packs. Don't you see ground realities before coming out with policies?
Also please refer us to the official document which is not an FAQ that mandates #cowin for vaccination
Until recently #cowin was only available in English. India isn't Bangalore.
Technical glitches are plenty, OTP is delayed or doesn't arrive, you insist on phone numbers when #aadhaar shd suffice there is no privacy policy specific to this portal, without consent you are issuing health ID to everyone. Why r u making everything so tough? @PMOIndia
There aren't enough doses. U ask for patent waivers tech transfer @wto but at home u refuse to do that and insist on a single manufacturer #BharatBiotech

U ve forced states to compete against each in Open mkt where neither @pfizer nor @moderna_tx will deal with them
Each wave of the pandemic all you do is come up with apps that don't do the intended job. Last year it was #aarogyasetu totally useless.
This year is #CoWIN .

Please stop listening to tech billionaires. They don't know public health. Even a 12 yr old kid can write an app.

Just as the govt completed the Content Monitoring System, thus gaining access in real-time to the phone calls and SMS messages of the entire Indian population, the implementation of open-source e2e encryption by #Whatsapp restored strong secrecy to the general citizenry's reach.
In the new rules lies concealed a chilling policy declaration: strong privacy is to be put beyond the reach of the common people, all of whose communications are to be seen by the governments of the future, all the time
For the rich and the few only, the technological possibilities of secure communication will be reserved. The rich can have an invitation-only privacy-respecting application without thinking about these burdensome rules.

"Asking @BillGates to fix inequality is like asking an arsonist to hose down your house after he just set it on fire. Philanthropists might have the deep pockets to fund the fire engine and water hose, but the money is coming from making our houses unlivable in the first place."
This from an essay by Linsey McGoey

when the foundation pours nonrepayable, tax-privileged grants on the world’s wealthiest pharmaceutical companies, or when it defends a global patent system that makes lifesaving medicines needlessly expensive in both poor and rich nations, the buck doesn’t just stop with Bill...
