Great quotes - hubris

“Every interaction in every area related to health is just so sh*tty. The software is crap, the services are crap, the people are crap. So there is a lot of value that people like us can add because you have a very different perspective on how the system should work.”

Chamath Palihapitiya, former Facebook executive and founder of Social+Capital Partnership, a VC fund. The interview. "I’m rich, so I don’t give a shit" and other gems... Not exactly sure that multiple, individual, narrowly-focused apps (his cited ventures) are a good answer, what about the Alzheimer's patient that has diabetes and asthma? Ten, twenty, or more separate apps for different healthcare-related issues sounds more like "crap" to this blogger! Co-morbidity is the name of the game if he wants to have a major effect...
