GNOME foundation executive director Karen Sandler makes an appearance in a BBC News article about the security risks of medical implants
That ideological bent meant she [Sandler] was keen to find out about the computer code running on any device that might be inserted in her body.
Unfortunately, she told the BBC, the implant's maker would not reveal its software. Its reassurances about the code's integrity did not help.
"Knowing what I know about software I'm sure it'll have bugs," she said.
Ms Sandler was also worried about the fact that increasing numbers of implants broadcast information all the time. That wireless link was a step too far for her.
LWN has covered several talks (1, 2) that Sandler has given on this topic as well.
