Cloud-connected medical devices save lives, but also raise questions about privacy, security, and oversight. An Object Lesson.

It sits in a tiny pocket in the left side of my chest, just above my heart.

The idea of a battery-equipped, internet-connected device living forever inside my chest both terrifies and fascinates me. When people say, “I’ll die if … Continue reading My Pacemaker Is Tracking Me From Inside My Body
