Dr. Moira Gunn is host of the public radio program Tech Nation. She was the first woman to earn a PhD in mechanical engineering at Purdue and has been interviewing technology leaders for more than a decade. She has conducted more than 2,000 in-depth interviews. I first met Moira in late 2001, just after Net Attitude was published. We talked about the future of the Internet for 20 minutes. You can listen to the 2001 interview here. We both thought it would be interesting, 14 years later, to discuss what my first book got right or wrong and the implications for healthcare. On Thursday morning, I took a motorcycle ride over to Old Forge, PA to a recording studio for the interview.
