Truth be told, I look to Christopher Snider as the gold standard for quality diabetes interviews and podcasts. I've wanted him on this podcast for some time.
Now, with that out of the way, let me tell you why Christopher was part of the podcast this week. He has a new role, as Community Manager at Tidepool
Tidepool is a terrific nonprofit organization that helps provide a free, open platform where people with diabetes, doctors, researchers, and others can either upload or view diabetes data. Christopher explains it way better than I do, so I will encourage you to listen for that.
We spend a good amount of time talking about Tidepool's recently announced Big Data Donation Project. Tidepool has agreed to donate ten percent of any fees they receive for selling your de-identified data to researchers. The money will go to one of eight diabetes nonprofits that you probably know well. Christopher explains it way better than I do, so I will encourage you to listen for that too.
There's also a vague reference to Odin, the Norse god.
