Medicine X (2013) Expectations

It’s 6:38am as I write this. By this time tomorrow (pacific time), I’ll be preparing to get on the group shuttle from my hotel to the main campus at Stanford and wait in line for my registration packet.

This time tomorrow three hours from now, I’ll be moderating a panel of ePatients that is hopefully going well. We’re supposed to set the tone for the rest of the conference – no pressure there.

Here’s what you can expect over the next few days from me.

1. Lots, and lots of tweets. Follow me @iam_spartacus – I think there’s a widget on the sidebar here in case you want a quick glance at my goings on. And the primary hashtag is #MedX.

Speaking of hashtags…

2. Lots of pictures. I’ll use Instagram as the primary means of sharing pictures from my adventures. Some I’ll share on Twitter, but most will stay there.

3. Hopefully, another massive Storify post chronicling the entire trip. I really like how the first one turned out.

4. I will miss my cats. That doesn’t have anything to do with the conference, but that also shouldn’t surprise you if you’ve been following me for any length of time.

I’m still not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that I’ve already done this before. Not knowing what to expect last year made everything I saw and learned that much more exciting. I wish I could go into this one with the same degree of naiveté.

Don’t mind my moment of caution, I’m sure all of this will be a lot of fun. Now I just have to remember to breathe before my panel starts.
