Taking a breath after #SXSH, #ePatCon, #HCSFBay, #Health2Dev, #Patients20 and #Health2con

It has been an amazing ten days. tiring, exhilarating, emotional, inspiring. So many emotions. So many great people. A chance to re-connect with amazing people. It is hard to pull the highlights from the plethora of amazing times. Let's see....

...Seeing Todd_Park rev up the crowd around Data Liberacion.
...Spending time with the folks from Edelman who are helping change health care by working with organizations to engage with health consumers.
...Getting my hands on a BodyMedia device to become even more a Quantified Selfer
...Listening to Charity Tilleman-Dick sing opera just ten feet in front of me before going on to tell us of her journey which includes a double lung transplant
...Seeing ePatientDave beatboxing.
...Dinner with some amazing health thought leaders (Roni, Jonathan, Ed - it was a privilege to spend quality time with you)
...Seth Godin stirring things up
...Jane Sarasohn-Kahn driving discussion with laser like clarity but an incredible empathy with the participants
...Participating in #QS discussions at HealthCampSFBay. Those sugar pills with sensors are totally awesome!
... Listening to Dr Alan Greene and Dr Preston Maring fire up the crowd around Food and Nutrition. These guys are changing the world!
...Watching a group of techies getting to grips with kitchen knives and learning to crush garlic and prepare a fresh salad. Seeing them snake bites of tomato and cucumber as they prepared their salad. Practical health led by Preston. Amazing!
...Building the Green Button to support Data Liberacion over the weekend with Alan Viars and Ethan Fry.
...Racing to Patients 2.0 to hear such inspiring stories.
...Working with the amazing Regina Holliday and a team to put on the best show that wasn't on the Agenda at Health 2.0. Watch out for The #RainbowButton Initiative video and Dr. HITECH, aka Ross Martin, produced an awesome rap for the video.
...Seeing some real businesses at Health 2.0. Transformation is real!
...Sharing the stage to close Health 2.0 with Patients and Farzad and Lygeia from the ONC in a session moderated by Jane Sarasohn-kahn and getting to talk about the Rainbow Button.
There are many more things that have happened but I just had to try and capture some of those highlights.
