Title: Ghost in the machine

In this episode: The NHS dumps Oracle for an open source solution. Five million GMail account details have been leaked. There’s a MEGAsync GUI client for Linux and the Free Software Foundation and Debian are getting together to help with a free software hardware database. We’ve got our usual array of finds, possibly a neuron or three and a rather complex Voice of the Masses.
