Australia’s COVIDSafe app has not detected a case despite 6 million downloads

The only problem with this article is the focus on whether this means the app “isn’t functioning properly”.

That’s not the message to convey.

The message is that as usual: regular, human-driven detective work is perfectly suitable. Privacy-invading technology is not the hammer with which to treat everything as a nail. Just like surveillance/encryption backdoors.

@mig5 seriously, makes me think we should start a small news site where we rewrite such articles adding actually useful context.
