Diabetes Community Advocacy Foundation -

May DSMA Blog Carnival

You may have heard of the #WeAreNotWaiting campaign, a D-Community push for diabetes innovation now.

This is a grassroots initiative calling for diabetes data and device interoperability — so that we PWDs have full access to our own data, can share it as we like, and can use on whatever apps or platforms we choose without being locked into some proprietary product from just one manufacturer. For the month of May, we’d like to know:

Why does open D-data & device interoperability matter to you?  How might your life improve if open data were the norm?

Feel free to tell a story about how proprietary software or product incompatibilities have impacted your life.  The Diabetes Mine team have hopes to share these stories with Industry decision-makers, if you do not want your story shared, please email cherise@diabetessocmed.com with “do not share” in the signature line.

Don’t forget to come back to this post and link your carnival post in the comments section.  Also please add the following line to your post: “This post is my May entry in the DSMA Blog Carnival.  If you’d like to participate too, you can get all of the information at http://diabetescaf.org/2014/05/may-dsma-blog-carnival-4/
