Just finished listening to last Sunday's TWiT. The panel talked a bit about personal genomics. @leo mentioned that your decision to share your data affects your children's privacy. Due to how human populations evolved, it's actually much broader than that. It is sometimes possible to de-anonymize a whole genealogy data base by submitting some well-chosen fake profiles (e.g., elifesciences.org/articles/518)
