Today Jessica DaMassa asks me about the microbiome, the Dev4Health conference & whether there are more female CEOs than there used to be. All in 2 minutes, plus a bit more with me defending myself from Bruce Greenstein’s wisecracks–Matthew Holt
THCB is thrilled to help launch a new interview series from Jessica DaMassa. It’s called WTF Health – ‘What’s the Future’ Health. Jessica is bringing you all some honest conversations about the future of health and how we love to hate WTF is wrong with it right now. Check out her first set of interviews from #HIMSS18 at www.wtf.health or stay tuned as she trots them out here.
I’m leading off with one of my favorites, Ted Tanner, Blockchain GOD and CTO of PokitDok. Here’s why you should watch Ted talk blockchain:
- Best Part: On what blockchain does NOT do… “it doesn’t make unicorns cough up $100 bills” (approx. 7 min)
- Why we need to look at blockchain as an ‘enablement platform’ that augments, not ‘rips and replaces’
- Predictions for the future of blockchain as tech giants move in
- How blockchain will be the next evolution of enterprise computing
Jessica DaMassa asks me every question about health & technology she can fit into 2 minutes. Topics include Facebook looking for hospital data, the EU starting a VC fund, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon blowing up the hype about ABC & the ACA under more assault. Jessica called this a “painful episode” but I thought it was rather good! BTW THCB will be featuring Jessica’s new video series WTF Health very soon so get prepped!–Matthew Holt
