Sandstorm.io / Personal data wobbing
I am a mathematician who somehow landed at DataHarvest. I am there to tell you about Sandstorm.io, a radically easier way to host a private ecosystem of collaborative apps. I also want to pitch ideas around corporate surveillance and algorithmic transparency, and new tools for personal data wobbing.
