New York State announced today a COVID-19 tracing app using Google and Apple's framework.
I responded with an email to the Governor and NYS Department of Health explaining that rather than asking for the trust of New Yorkers, they should release the source code for this taxpayer-funded software under a free/libre license; that way, we can all verify that the software is doing what it claims to do.
If you are a New Yorker, please consider doing the same.
The email came from firstname.lastname@example.org, but I don't know if replies reach the Governor Cuomo. The official contact form is here:
NYSDOH can be reached at email@example.com
The announcement contains an email address, but I can't read it, because it is obfuscated by CloudFlare and requires non-free JS to display:
If someone else observes it, please reply with it so I can send mail there as well.
I'm late but the email appears to be firstname.lastname@example.org
@lionirdeadman Thank you! You're not late, I'll forward it.
