For a full 24 hours, on stage in San Francisco and streamed live everywhere else, we’ll be talking to people from both inside and outside the tech industry to debate, discuss and hopefully suggest answers to the question: How can we make the tech industry less awful? We’re also encouraging participants to actually start putting some of the solutions raised at the event into practice. That might mean actually building a product that “disrupts” the...

"We live in a world awash with information, but we seem to face a growing scarcity of wisdom. And what’s worse, we confuse the two.

"Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future. The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately." #wisdom

Imagine what could happen if we changed our mindset and decided to see the possibilities in healthcare today and all we saw was abundance 
Imagine what could happen if we changed our mindset and decided to see the possibilities that are right in front of us, in healthcare today, and all we saw was abundance. Business as usual in healthcare is over because we live in an open and connected world. We are living in an era of abundance that demands business agility and human-centered design to survive.

Sole is the best place on earth. I have lived in many places and have gone to many salons around the globe. Sole is my ultimate favorite because of the people who work here and also the quality of their work. Tony is fabulous and has given me my best look ever for which I am grateful. If you need a great look at people who care about you, this is the place for you. How do I know? I have been coming here for 10+ years and I am a very tough customer who expects excellent customer service.
