In NYC for #MongoDBWorld and for @Medyears meetings

This week I am in New York City to take part in MongoDB World. You can still grab yourself a ticket to the event on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Sheraton in Times Square. Check out the link here: You will have to be quick. Ticket sales close at 10am ET today (Monday 23rd).

Today is a series of training sessions at MongoDB HQ in NYC. Unfortunately I am not getting to go to those sessions but I will be blogging from the sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I am also here to take part in a number of meetings for Medyear. There is a lot happening with Medyear. The ability to import BlueButton data and share it securely is attracting a lot of attention. Meanwhile we continue to refine both the iOS App and the web site. Our approach in which we break down your health timeline in to a series of posts that can be discretely and securely shared gives a lot of flexibility and using hashtags for public and private chronicles has created a rich platform that gives our members a simple set of tools that offer tremendous flexibility.

I keep finding new ways to build my own health timeline on For example, I have been able to use to create workflows that pipe my Fitbit data to my Medyear timeline. We are working on relaunching our corporate presence as That will include a blog and I want to publish some ideas about how people are/can use their account to gather their health data in to one place.

Anyone can sign up for a free account on and start aggregating their health data. If you do, let me know I would love to learn about how you are using Medyear. Medyear is totally patient/member-centric so we want to hear from you about what you need to help you manage your health data.

It is early on Monday morning. After fueling with some Caffeine after a 3am start I am heading to Blueprint Health until early afternoon. If you are in the SoHo area why don’t we connect.
