About me

WIth CEO Rick Brush, I'm about to launch The WaytoWellville @WaytoWellville, the first project of HICCup.co [Health Initiative Coordinating Council]]. It's a contest to create and measure the impact of broad community-wide health-production programs (not just "care") in five small communities across the US. It comprises five places, five metrics (e.g. per capita health costs, transitions to diabetes, high-school graduation rates), five years. The premise is that interacting, critical-density programs will have a visible impact that one-off interventions don't achieve. Beyond that, I spend most of my time exploring new space, health and IT start-ups and technologies, writing about them and actively (and with full disclosure) investing in some of them. I love what I do and I love all the travel it entails! Board seats include 23andMe, Eventful, Luxoft, Meetup, PA Consulting, Personal Inc., Voxiva, XCOR, WPP Group, Yandex. Also Long Now Foundation, Sunlight Foundation, Personal Genome Project, WEF Global Agenda Council on Fostering Entrepreneurship. Specialties: the Accountable Net, IP and telco policy, identity management, social software, Central and Eastern Europe, start-ups, semantic tools, mapping tools, foundation governance, board experience (esp. "corporate regime change"), commercial space, general aviation. Education: Harvard BA, Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center completion certificate.

  • Health Initiative Coordinating Council (HICCup!) Www.hiccup.co @hiccup_co. A startup that will foster and coordinate citywide health intervention programs in a small number of communities willing and able to gather their forces, raise funds and collect extensive data.... around a citywide set of (self-selected) health interventions including preventive medicine, exercise, nutrition and the like. The goal is to have these programs funded by someone who invests in the expectations of a return... which is the best way for the program to become scalable. As I said, more soon!
