This week in PopTech: Doctors, protesters and monkeys

There's always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week's highlights follows.

  • With yesterday's announcement of his new company, Sherpaa, Dr. Jay Parkinson (PopTech 2008) continues to re-imagine the patient/doctor experience by making a network of hand-picked health professionals chosen for quality, communication skills, personality, and mission accessible to those who are interested in a type of curated health care. 
  • Author of the Guardian’s weekly ”Bad Science” column and Bad Science: Quacks, Hacks, and Big Pharma Flacks, British physician Ben Goldacre (PopTech 2010) announced this week that he's taking to the stage for a run of live "nerd shows" called Uncaged Monkeys in December.
