Non diabetic using glucose meter

Chris McLay is (I'm guessing a bit) a non-diabetic who tweeted one week that he would try out a glucose meter to try to understand what it's like to manage diabetes.

I think people who wish to innovate should follow Chris's example because there's no way to appreciate a consumer base's pain better than to experience it for yourself.

The Scary Cow film-maker cooperative had its 10th screening event yesterday. Anton Gill had invited me to see his new film The Crosses which I enjoyed. But what made a real impact on me was his other film, RE:invention.

RE:invention is a wonderful short documentary about real people dealing with the effects of the current bad economy. There are three vignettes given that cover each person's crisis, their reactions of despair, and finally their self re-invention--hence the wonderfully chosen title of the film.

It was a great movie because it covered the lives of real people whom I could relate to. It was inspirational. Overall it was good enough to make me cry. Bravo!
