    Cory Doctorow, Christian "quaddi" Dameff, & Jeff “r3plicant” Tully MD - Literal Self-Pwning: Why Patients - and Their Advocates - Should Be Encouraged to Hack, Improve, and Mod Med Tech



    Cory Doctorow, Science fiction author, activist and journalist (https://craphound.com/), He/Him
    Christian "quaddi" Dameff MD, Emergency Medicine Physician & Hacker at The University of California San Diego, He/Him
    Jeff “r3plicant” Tully MD, Anesthesiologist at The University of California San Diego, He/Him

    Presentation Title: Literal Self-Pwning: Why Patients - and Their Advocates - Should Be Encouraged to Hack, Improve, and Mod Med Tech
    Length of presentation: 45 minutes please

    What do Apple, John Deere and Wahl Shavers have in common with med-tech companies? They all insist that if you were able to mod their stuff, you would kill yourself and/or someone else... and they've all demonstrated, time and again, that they are unfit to have the final say over how the tools you depend on should work.

    As right to repair and other interoperability movements gain prominence, med-tech wants us to think that it's too life-or-death for modding. We think that med-tech is too life-or-death NOT to to be open, accountable and configurable by the people who depend on it. Hear two hacker doctors and a tech activist talk about who's on the right side of history and how the people on the wrong side of history are trying to turn you into a walking inkjet printer, locked into an app store.

        Pretty good discussion on the state of cyber in medicine. I think it helps if we keep the message moving and get more medical practitioners involved.
