I am happy to announce that I have been invited to the first ever Health Foo Camp. There is not even a web-page for this yet, but it has been previously announced on the RWJF blog
FOO stands for Friends of O’Reilly. It is an invitation event that puts some of the top geeks and thinkers in the same room. This is the first health-focused FOO camp.
This is a pretty big deal for me. The moment I first heard of Foo Camp, I realized that going to one was on my bucket list.
This was similar to the first time I realized that Regina Holliday sometimes auctions off her art. I realized that being wealthy enough to win an auction of one of her art work was my new definition of being rich… I also secretly covet one of her custom jackets.
Anyways, when something like this happens I begin to realize that maybe I am making the difference I want to with my life. It looks like people are finally taking this whole Open Source Health Software thing as seriously as I do. Its a pretty awesome feeling and after sharing a celebratory dinner with my wife, and soaking up the good news for a few days, I thought my readers might like to share in my sense of satisfaction. At least I think I have readers….
