Tuesday night in Chicago I gave a 28 minute talk for Philips customers at the huge (56,000 people) radiology conference, RSNA. The leading-edge social media guy at Philips, Noah Harpster (@PhilipsLiveFrom), broadcast it live using the free Periscope live-streaming app (owned by Twitter), and boom, here’s the archive. Unpolished, raw, live. Free. (Email subscribers, if you can’t see the videos below, click here to view the post online.)
This is the first time I’ve spoken to radiologists. This talk has very little about my cancer story, and a lot about the impact on professionals of two things:
- When assets digitize, things change fast
- Information makes new things possible
I also pulled out some props – including a 3D printout I had done locally of my lungs (my bronchi and metastases). I told you that when things digitize, new stuff becomes possible.
Some quickie clips from the hallway
Lately I’ve been finding that some people like SHORT clips to use on their site, to make a point concisely. How about 15 seconds? Philips published these from an informal hallway chat.

Text: “The vast majority of what we do is take care of ourselves – up to the limits of our ability … which is heavily influenced by access to information. And when the internet came along, it made new things possible.”
