“Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” — Steve Jobs

More details to come in future posts, but a short summary of what’s coming for ACR 2015:

Upcoming Experimental stuff:

I’m in the beginning (soft-beta-pre-launch) phase of a new site I’m calling, which I hope to turn into a more structured educational resource for patients to learn about their arthritis. If you’re a patient interested in this, sign up for the mailing list on the site, where I’ll push out updates as they’re available.
