A #musical about #medicine? Why not Jesus #CRISPR Superstar? Got a few ideas looking for #dreamteam 2 work w/ #PWSYN pic.twitter.com/D0JkeB3QB8— CATHERINE COSTE (@cathcoste) March 26, 2016
Jesus CRISPR Superstar The Musical
Subject: revolution in medicine, coming from diverse fields: digital, bioengineering, biology, genetics, sharing economy.
Mocking the present health care system -- and IP, patents, DRM or digital locks, the Blockbuster Drug Quest of Big Pharma (cf. Chicago the musical)
Patients and people wanting to change things (cf Matilda the musical)
Multinationals (IBM of genomics -> Illumina) and open-access (engineers and people building platforms to cure multiple diseases, using CRISPR disease modeling. Ex: Mission Massimo, the Linux of Genomics?) and Google (23andMe -> the Google of DTC genetics) and Apple (the iPhone as your primary care physician, prescribing sensors & apps and interpreting them with algorithms).
Conventional medicine as a system where the Earth (Doctors) is placed at the center of the universe. Then comes a Doctor (pseudo: Copernicus), speaking about digital medicine, formulating a model of the universe that is placing the sun (Patients) rather than the Earth (Doctors) at the center of the universe. Disruptive! (cf. Memphis the Musical)
Writing the algorithm to cure health care system -> my body, my data.
Would you rather donate your vital organs, or your data? In organ-based medicine, it is vital that people agree to donate their organs (live organ donation, "post-mortem" organ donation). In cell-based medicine, it is vital that people consent to share their data (saving lives, just like organ donation).
Ownership of data by patient is crucial for digital medicine. In organ-based medicine, the question of ownership of medical data by patient is not relevant (patient is not a trained organ specialist). In cell-based medicine (the cell and its core, the DNA, RNA), the question of ownership of medical and genetic data by patient is becoming highly relevant.
My data on my digital device, smart because of the merge between IBM Watson and the digital device.
Empowering people: weapon of massive instruction -> MOOCs (My Kinky MOOCs, cf Kinky Boots)

Dying Steve Jobs:
« Biology and I.T. have merged.
Time to learn about it. »
