This week, Mike Lawson joins me for a conversation about the new and improved TuDiabetes.org, his new boss at the Diabetes Hands Foundation, the Big Blue Test, and the hidden glory of a single sign-on web presence. Enjoy.
I’ve written a great deal about how much the Diabetes Online Community has benefited me since I started my blog. It’s one thing to know there are other people out there that feel the exact same way you do, but it’s an entirely different feeling when you can interact with them. Manny Hernandez has taken that simple maxim and expanded it to an network of people with or affected by Diabetes and formed TuDiabetes – a community of people touched by Diabetes, run by the Diabetes Hands Foundation. Social networking might be a big taboo to some, but people like Manny have been able to capitalize on the promise and potential of this technology and really make a difference in people’s lives. He joined me for an hour of discussion about all of his adventures in the online universe.
