I just learned via Mark Scrimshire (@ekivemark) that a VRM panel — Are Free Customers Better Than Captive Ones? — has been accepted for the next SXSW. That means people voted for it, even though I had forgotten about it and didn’t promote it all. (Did anyone else? Dunno yet.) The location is listed as Startup Village – Downtown Austin Hilton, which I gather is this one.
In any case, it’s way cool, and I look forward to seeing lots of you there.
Meanwhile Mark has invited me (and therefore us) to participate in HealthCamp Boston in Fall 2012. Looking forward to that, too.
The bottom line (literally) of this report on the Consumer Energy Summt in the UK is this piece of excellent news:
…energy companies have agreed to give consumers access to their data in electronic format as part of the government Midata programme.
Connect.me, a VRM company, gives us a way to construct “trust frameworks” among ourselves. They have worked to make this as game-free as possible. Check it out.
