Jason Adams is the co-founder of CGM in the Cloud, said to be the biggest type 1 diabetes group on Facebook. With more than 18,000 members and still growing, it's a place to share ideas, advice and experience with sending information from Continuous Glucose Monitors into the cloud. In other words, moving the CGM information onto web-based devices so that BG numbers can be viewed remotely in a variety of ways. Adams explains how his daughter's T1D diagnosis led him to become the first non-programmer using Nightscout (the first open source program to "free" the data from a Dexcom CGM) and walks us through the founding of CGM in the Cloud. Adams says he initially expected the group to serve about 15-20 local friends!
