While Fitbit is perfectly positioned for 2011, it isn’t positioned for where digital health is headed.

I teach at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston where I cultivate programs in digital literacy. I like to think of myself as preparing the next generation of physician for a very different future. I’m most passionate about how doctors engage and communicate in public spaces. Since 2005 I've been an active witness to the social health revolution and its impact on doctors and patients.
Most of my public thinking is centered at 33 charts. It’s where I explore the weird edges of medicine/technology and narrate the experience of the post-analog physician. 33 charts is my test kitchen for thinking. 33 charts was recently selected to be archived for future generations in the National Library of Medicine.
Communication is at my core. Before the Internet I cut my teeth on pulp doing freelance work for magazines such as Parenting and American Baby. I am the author of Colic Solved - The Essential Guide to Infant Reflux and the Care of Your Crying, Difficult-to-Soothe Baby (Ballantine/Random House, 2007) and First Foods (St. Martin's Press, 2001). I've done a bunch of other cool stuff that I've forgotten at this point.
When I'm not writing or thinking, I read obsessively.
I have an Australian Labradoodle that speaks English.
I like to work really early in the morning.
