It's all about the special sauce...
I understand that for some, digital health still might be a bitter pill, but the promise of techno-medical mumbo jumbo is bold and transformative. That being said, in my opinion, the “secret sauce”...

"The single biggest mistake people make is to think that genius is a fix reality. When in fact, it's a punctuated experience that we all experience." Genius is our birthright and mediocrity is self-imposed | John Nosta | TEDxBedminster

Efficiency!!
 
Exclusive sneak peek:

This is the most interesting new thing/company I've seen this year. Wattcost tracks when different electrical appliances are turned on or off (it can tell what brand of refrigerator you have, for instance, just by the electrical signal it shows on your power line/meter). Reduce your carbon footprint.

Will be coming to United States in mid 2015 for $149.

https://www.wattcost.com/

Why is this important? Google bought Nest for $3.x billion. This would generate even more data about what you do in your house than that. It knows, for instance, when you turn on and off lights, or open your refrigerator door, all by watching your power line.

Introduction
First and foremost, John is a thinker. A thinker entrenched in the world of science, medicine and innovation. John is the founder of NOSTALAB--an amorphous, self-organizing neural network dedicated to the advancement of digital health. 

Unwilling to accept the status quo, he’s a contrarian with a focus the future of health and wellness. A leading voice in the convergence of technology and health, Nosta helps define, dissect and deliberate global trends in digital health.

John also pens HEALTH CRITICAL for Forbes--a top global blog on health and technology with over 1.5 million page views in the last year. He has made appearances on Bloomberg Surveillance as a contributor and guest host.

John has a established reputation as a vocal advocate for strategic thinking and creativity. He has built his career on the “science of advertising,” a process where strategy and creativity work together for superior marketing. He has also been recognized for his ability to translate difficult medical and scientific concepts into material that can be more easily communicated to patients, clinicians and scientists. He is also a popular lecturer on a variety of topics--always presented in a unique and stimulating way. 

Additionally, John has distinguished himself as a scientific thinker. Earlier in his career, John was a research associate at Harvard Medical School and has co-authored several papers with global thought-leaders in the field of cardiovascular physiology.

K & B is simply the best!!! Timely, smart, professional and keenly aware of price! This is THE team to help with ANY home tasks. And let's not stop there! They are very technologically savvy too. From texting to comprehensive estimates (with photos), they are more like the remodelers from the future than most of today's vendors that seem stuck in past. I'm sure that my future will include K & B!
