For those interested (or not), me and the cat are still v much in Leighton Buzzard for LD2. Back in 2015 we lived with @lauraelizakay and she’s written a lovely book! Published March 2021! The cat is indifferent. Great news.
Being sent photos of cats not giving a shit about my book is my no.1 fave genre of review. This particular cat used to live with me so should really be more invested.

The big story, so far, is that the original agreements didn't protect IP very well. AI firms like Faculty could easily have profited off their unprecedented access to NHS data. HMG say they fixed it after our FOI, but haven't given us the version they say cures the problem.
