Just a heads-up that today is a very special day for the convergence of diabetes and technology: Computer Zen wizard Scott Hanselman (ca. 20 years Type 1) is documenting his "day with diabetes" blow-by-blow using the nifty new net-tracking tool, Twitter.
The idea was to "give folks who don't think about diabetes a little insight into how often I, and 20 million others, either do, or should, be thinking about their diabetes. I'd also like you to imagine if a small child had this disease, and how a parent of a small child deals with it," Hanselman writes.
At my check-in time, 8:54am Pacific, our man was reporting: "Out of the shower, reconnecting the insulin pump tube to me. The tube is 43" long. The pump has 4 days worth of insulin."
Check it out, People. Maybe the best thing going since Justin.tv? :)
****** UPDATE: ******
Regarding results, Scott has reported that he hit the front page of Twitter.com, has a possible news article coming out in The Oregonian, and he raised another $2000 dollars toward diabetes research. Nice job, everyone!
