Howard Look, President and CEO of Tidepool, is my guest this week. We cover his time at TiVo as a Vice President of Software and User Experience and his role as Vice President of Software at Pixar before getting to Tidepool. Tidepool is a non-profit developing an open source platform that will serve as the hub for previously isolated and siloed diabetes data. This is a really big deal. Enjoy!
Dayle and I are in Huntsville, Alabama planning our wedding. While sharing the specifics of what we’ve accomplished today is not appropriate, I can say that we’ve visited multiple venue locations, met with a florist, and a baker. We’re also making plans to meet with at least one photographer and caterer before we return to San Francisco on Tuesday.
I’m joined Nate Heintzman this week, and our primary topic is Google Glass. Specifically, Nate is working on a project called Glucose Glass that looks to integrate data from external diabetes devices in an intuitive and seamless way. We discuss the project, obstacles to success, and what the future of diabetes data could look like if open access were a reality. We also cover the origins of Insulindepence, as Nate is one of the co-founders. Enjoy!
I’ve been quite lucky in my podcasting adventures over the past few years. I do my best to present my show as a professional, something to be proud of each and every week I publish a new episode. I try to let my content speak for itself rather than worry about an overly wordy pitch or request for an interview. No matter how convincing I may be, I still rely on people actually saying “yes” to my invites.
These past two conversations are just another instance of kind folks taking a leap of faith and having an hour-long conversation with a total stranger. All of this based on an email with 5 sentences and a link to a podcast, inviting prospective guests to “sample my podcast if they would like to see how I conduct my business.”
