Quality of Experience

In the west (and particularly in Europe) we tend to settle for the less-than-inspiring experience: the experience with the product that we cannot configure and use;

the experience with the train service that sells us the long distance ticket on the sardine-packed train with no seat;

and the experience with the institution that takes no extra step to realize the goal in such a way as would benefit everyone: the applicant, the civil servant who's getting paid to perform the… Continue

I met John several years ago , as I was hitch hiking around the Baltic - as , back then , he was living in Talinn - , and then met him again at a great camp in Normandy , France , where I also got the opportunity to listen to him play on stage.
I m happy to see John here on this p2p platform , and with all of us look forward to deepen certain understandings and further bring a open inclusive peer paradigm into shape.

John, are you located in Euope? I share your interest (I think?) in creating an open system of certification and ongoing learning for micro-etrepreneurs and small/start-up business.

Hi there! Sorry my response has been so god-awful slow. But I've on the road for most of the spring, summer, and autumn campaigning around an Idea that I've become pretty passionate about. I'm now developing (having gotten sponsorship) a hardware device, and backend system for helping those with chronic conditions (e.g. diabetes, which is growing at an epidemic rate, according to WHO) manage their own care and medical records, while having access to information about the best medical care available (globally) through - that's right - a certification program driven by a p2p network of health care professionals. According to Al Jazeera, the medical tourism rates from the US, which were 750k in 2007 are expected to rise to 10 million by 2010.

I have sponsorship, the project is getting funded, and even the royal organisation has taken an interest. The system is now in proof of concept phase and is going for clinical trials in Sweden. I believe, and hope, with my experience from Skype and F-Secure that I may be able to help realize this.
