Off to HealthCamp SF Bay & Health 2.0
While approaching a one year tenure in the micro-blogging space aka Twittersphere; and a fraction thereof as a periodic health care blogger, I am off to San Francisco with beaucoup energy to link up with like minded Tweeps for face to face conversations.
First stop on Monday is HealthCamp SFBay hosted at the Garfield Center for Innovation (a Kaiser operation), where I expect to see Mark Scrimshire, founder and tireless evangelista for the Healthcamp un-conference series, as well as Cindy Throop, Mike Kirkwood, Maren Connary, and Sherry Reynolds (those that I understand to be attending).
On Tuesday I get to experience my fist ever, aka ‘virginal,’ Health2.0 event at the San Francisco Concourse Design Center. I kinda feel that for someone who’s been on sabbatical for a while, these events will afford me the opportunity to re-engage with my tribe, i.e., a collective of like minded people committed to be the change for better in their lives with a particular passion in the health care space. Almost a coming home experience since my days at UC Berkeley in the 70s; yeah tribe!
But best of all; I get to experience a ‘road trip’ from San Diego to San Francisco accompanied by my youngest son, and Dave Matthews band junkie, Brendon (not too happy with dad here); and that both of us get to stay with my oldest son Anthony in his Ocean Beach flat, with Catherine and “saddie-mo’, a three year old bundle of joy.
Cool deal, out for the week tweeple! I, and many others, will be live tweeting from both venues…
