Well, it’s January, Janus time – the Roman god of beginnings and transitions. He looks back, he looks ahead… he’s amazing!
Soon I’ll post about 2011 and 2012. But first: while putzing with my website today I revisited some way back content, which sets the stage even better for looking ahead. So, a quickie to start the year:
Video oldies – three short talks from the start of my public speaking about healthcare.
- I just found video of the first talk I ever gave (18:03) at a healthcare business conference – e-Patient Connections, Oct. 2009. It’s amazing to go back there and see what we were looking ahead to, back then.
- The Society for Participatory Medicine had just been formed, and its journal had just launched its introductory essays.
- Two years later, two dozen e-patients were brought together at the event to create an e-Patient Bill of Rights.
- Six weeks later, December 2009, was this Quantified Self talk (14:43) at Wired headquarters in San Francisco.
- I loved relating with the tech geeks at QS; it was the first time I dared show the spreadsheet where I’d tracked my tumor sizes.
- btw, socializing after this event I asked Matthew Holt of Health 2.0 for a bit of start-up advice. He never gave me a penny, of course :-), but his advice worked out.
- Three months later, March 2010, was this impromptu 10 minute interview with the then-enigmatic Dr. Anonymous. (He’s since uncloaked himself: Dr. Mike Sevilla at Family Medicine Rocks.)
