Digital Health: Borrow from Developing Countries?
    Can novel health applications in developing countries spark health innovation in the United States? Massive experimentation in mobile and interactive health is taking place overseas, often targeting poor populations in poor countries. Consider several current examples: 1) a smart card enabled health savings scheme for uninsured mothers-to-be; 2) a crowdsourcing application to identify medicine stockouts in real-time; and 3) a viral model for peer sharing audio health content using mobile phones and traditional social networks. These are services from just one country: Kenya. Worldwide, mobile and interactive innovations represent fundamental shifts in how we think about health and healthcare. These innovations are leapfrogging traditional models. What can we adapt to the US health system (and market) in the next 2-3 years?

Sexy Data Solutions for Public Transit Systems
    Monday March 12, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ AT&T Conference Hotel (Salon D) (1900 University Ave, Austin, TX 78705)
    Gas prices are up, suburban areas are adopting near-transit, mixed-use philosophies of development, and everyone wants to get to work on time. It's no surprise that use of public transportation is rising. With the ubiquity of the internet and smartphones, up-to-date information shouldn't be hard to find. And yet, some major cities and transit systems aren't using digital tools to update riders. Others have developed hyper-current feeds and channels to make sure citizens are in the know. In short, the amount of transit-related information that needs to be disseminated is tremendous. This panel will discuss: 1) How riders have created their own sources and channels for breaking news and providing current information. 2) The newest platforms chosen by official transit agencies for getting information out, and why some work better than others. 3) How crowd-sourced information can help create "smart cities"? 4) Ways the public can apply similar tactics to other areas in their cities.

Your Technology and the Conflict in Congo
    We love the latest technology. Computers, phones, and cameras can enhance our lives. But are we aware of the true cost? In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a war for access to mineral-rich land is being waged on the bodies of girls and women. This war is directly linked to our technology consumption. The sale of minerals for our electronics– Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, and Gold- fuels the fighting in the DRC. Conditions are so bad that a girl or woman is raped every minute. The war is being funded today by our use of these minerals because consumers have not taken a stand. We need and want technology, but at what price? Join Sarah Fretwell of The Truth Told project as she shares stories and images from her intensive research trip to the DRC. Learn from her experiences and resources to become an educated technology consumer. Making a difference doesn't mean giving up technology. Become an advocate for conflict-free electronics.
