ABC News SA has published a feature story on DIY Looping this morning!
I am a little annoyed that the title refers to us as diabetes “sufferers”, but overall it seems like a nicely balanced article. Just ignore details like the caption “building software” on pictures that are showing people in fact replacing the batteries in their CGM transmitters.
It dovetails quite well with the ABC Science Show radio segment on looping earlier this year.
The journalist apparently attended one of the Adelaide “build parties” where people get together to share information and show each other how they’ve solved issues, as an adjunct to the wealth of information online and in the online “looping” communities on places like Facebook. Over the last few years these gatherings have been happening in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane at least.
Apparently this will also be a TV segment on South Australian ABC news at 7PM tonight, which will be accessible via iView until Tuesday.
This is what happens when things are played on free-to-air TV by the national broadcaster. People make recordings!
