Miles Beckett, creator of the first web series "lonelygirl15," joins Jason today to discuss his latest adventure. Returning to his M.D. roots, Miles founded Silversheet, a verification platform for doctors and nurses and a certification platform for surgery centers. A fascinating conversation about the rise of technology (and optimism) in healthcare, the importance of network effect and its role in Silversheet's development, future field developments including telemedicine and occupational outlook for professionals, why med schools are losing money, current system challenges (hint: if you have kids, don't go to Urgent Care ... go to the ER!) -- branding, how "lonelygirl15" came about, the history of YouTube, and much more.
