Some of you may have been aware that last week I was at the Roche Social Media Summit in San Diego, CA (Hashtag #dsummit). For those of you that were there, I look forward to reading all of your follow up posts, please tag your blog posts with the hashtags so we can read them all. To those that were not there, I hope that you were able to follow along with everyone on Twitter. I think that next year there will be more of a focus on getting a better quality and less lag streaming video of the event.
I am going to try my best to cover as many as the topics that were discussed as I can. I plan on doing a week long, 5-7 part series about this. Here is the schedule:
Tuesday – International Diabetes Federation
Wednesday – Jeffrey Brewer, President JDRF
Thursday – Dan Kane, VP Marketing Roche
Friday – Glucose Getaway, Dr. Polonsky
Saturday – Relationship Building with DOC
Sunday – Taking the “O” Out of DOC
Monday – FDA Discussions
I am trying to type most of these posts while I am flying back from San Diego to Atlanta for a connecting flight, so it is a good 6 hours to allow me to write, write, and write some more. It is becoming difficult though because I think Roche made a mistake, they booked me a first class flight. I have never flown first class before, so I was actually a little nervous at first because I didn’t know what to expect. But, I do see that my perception of the people who fly first class is still the same, bunch of arrogant pricks. There are a few that aren’t because they probably don’t fly first class all the time, like me. I just wonder what they do. Anyway, getting side tracked, but they also have free drinks, food, and movies. I just finished watching Cedar Rapids (not so good) and am currently watching The Dilemma, so I am becoming distracted.
Sorry, I got off subject there for a while. But I hope that you all come back throughout the week because I have a lot of things that I think you will like. Some great ideas were brought up at the #dsummit and some new projects that we need to start working on like yesterday, so let’s get to it!
