Jellybean 55 with GoodSam Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson; Neurosurgeon, Retrieval Physician, App Designer, Sceptic and Gentleman. It is hard not to like this chap.

Mark Wilson somehow found time to talk to Matt McPartlin at SMACC. He really had an awful lot to do in Dublin too. Mark was presenting, fighting, drinking, dancing, facing his PhDemons and listening to @Kangaroodoc, all of which are frankly exhausting. But then he was asking for trouble by being so good at everything and even better at certain sexy media friendly matters.

Mark knows concussion like very few people ever will. He is a neurosurgeon that gets down and dirty in the streets of London with the paramedics as a Retrieval Physician. He invents apps that go huge and actually save people lives. He has essentially created a way of real-time crowd-sourcing a medic when you really really want one.

I wish I could do that.

Mark is the main person behind the GoodSAM app which as been reviewed by Tessa Davis here on LITFL.

Lots of us have little moments of App inspiration but Mark has done it. It is free so it is genuine #FOAMed. It is also much more in that; it mobilises an entire community of volunteer responders which crosses the divide between clinician and non-clinician. The follow up is interesting too. Mark released this App back in 2014. Being one of the more successful Apps it really didn’t end there. The app is now in version 5. It has a life of its own and Mark still maintains it, updates it, promotes it, fixes it up when problems arise. It is an ongoing concern.

Have a listen to Mark and Matt, have a look at goodsamapp.organd have a think about getting involved.

Son. Lighting up my life and climbing up some rocks.
Where I walk everyday we are exposed to the southern ocean. The southern ocean is an unforgiving place. The casualties of its inhospitable state get washed up on the shore. Usually dead. This is a dead #fairy #penguin #Rare #beautiful #dead
Just a beach. Some sea grass, a dog and the water.
Freaky #sunset through #smoke on the way home.
There are a few Ridge Tracks around but for ease of access & relatively easy #walking & #scrambling the #RidgeTrack and #RazorbackTrack in #cathedralranges #victoria #australia is really very rewarding.the exposure on both sides is quite something. Very pleasant surprise for me in my #backyard
