Mobile Monday Amsterdam now has their own YouTube channel, so you can watch all those brilliant talks from their previous and future events.
I am still impressed by the whole thing. First of all I have to congratulate the organizers (Marc, Yuri, Maarten, Sam, and Martijn) for doing a great job. They fully supported all the speakers from the first contact to the end of the event. The venue where the event took place was an actual church, De Duif, and it was a spectacular choice. From the moment I entered it, I was just blown away. Beautiful light, colors, art, atmosphere. Everything was ready for a great event. I was the first speaker to present after a short break in the middle of the program, and I had so much fun doing it. Mostly because of the crowd which was very educated and full of interesting people. It was such a delight to present to them.
In my talk, that is me on the right 🙂 I focused on demonstrating how mobile technology has changed the way medical workers treat patients. I started with the most basic examples like the ability to alert emergency medical services with the mobile phone, moved on to more advance staff like accessing the electronic patient record using a smart phone, and finished with demonstrating two cool extensions used to hack the iPhone and give it additional functions useful in medicine. One of these hacks is actual a project of my own, which I will be writing more about soon. For now you can check out my slideshow, although a video of my talk should soon be available as well.
By the way, be sure to check out slideshows from all other presenters who appeared in the event. Slideshare even put the spotlight on the event on their front page.
Also take a look at some gorgeous photographs from the event taken by Hidde van der Lijn.
I have an update on Mobile Monday event which will take place in Amsterdam, 15 hours from now. The whole event will be streamed live for you enjoyment. It starts at 4 pm and ends at 7 pm (CET). My presentation should begin at 5:55 pm. Be sure to tune in, and even post questions to presenters via Twitter.
I will be speaking at the 14th event of the Mobile Monday chapter in Amsterdam titled Mobile Health. This event will take place on 25th of January with doors opening at 3pm and presentations running until 7pm with a half hour break. Even if you cannot be there, be sure to check out the livestream or watch all videos, talks and presentations afterward on MoMo Amsterdam website. You do not want to miss this, because some extraordinary people will take part in this event. I myself will be talking about mobile technology from a doctor’s standpoint, and try to give an overview of how this technology has influenced the way we treat patients today.
