Rose Hoban, North Carolina Health News, Chapel Hill:

Favorite panel so far today:
“Making sense of hospital ratings. It was about picking apart the ratings so that, if you write about them, you can put them into context.”

Favorite speaker Thursday morning:
“I’ll say Marshall Allen (from ProPublica), just because he and I are friends and he’s a good guy.”

Best tip so far:
“Using the ‘.@’ sign for Twitter so that it doesn’t just send (your tweet) to your followers but to everybody.”

Most exciting upcoming event:
“The Friday night cocktail party. Half of this is social networking.”

Sightseeing plans while in Boston:
“I’m staying across town, so I’ll be looking out the window of the T when I head back to my hotel.”
