Check out our neighbors at HealthRosetta! I’ve just joined the collaborators board — which also includes Bill Gates, Esther Dyson, Susannah Fox, Danny Sands, Rushika Fernandopulle, Dan Kraft and Eric Topol, Jonathan Bush, Bryan Vartabedian, Gilles Frydman, Rob Lamberts, John Grohol, Tom Ferguson, Lygeia Ricchiardi, Adrian Gropper, Hugo Campos, OpenNotes, Leonard Kish, Shannon Brownlee and many more.
What is this? Dave Chase, a serial entrepreneur with a resume including Microsoft and a health startup or two, has founded Health Rosetta as a nonprofit to further values of openness, actionability and so on.
I’m working with them, as are many others — including those named above, for example a Microsoft founder, the Internet icon Esther Dyson, the awardwinning founder and speaker Eric Topol, the thought leaders John Grohol, the late Tom Ferguson, Leonard Kish, Hugo Campos, Adrian Gropper, Shannon Brownlee and others.
Among my contributions is a chapter for an e-book Chase is publishing.
From the site:
