John's got a clinical post today: Gordon's Notes: Avian Influenza: A guide for the interested layperson. Well done. I especially like John's summary of this AFP paper.
Long before I met Bill Heuston – I knew I would like him. He's done great research and is very organized. (an asset I envy) Chris Cates is the same – yest I have yet to meet him to validate that opinion. Christ posted a great summary page on Treatment of common infections – December Newsletter 2006 It's a must-bookmark/digg, etc.
A few years ago – I had a great idea and invented a Balloon member for cerumen removal but the nurses in my office told me I was a nutcase for dreaming up such crazy ideas all of the time.
Turns out that Stephen A Carter (see link above) beat me to it. Great idea, Stephen! Where can I buy one?
Dave says we should all Choose RELAX insteat of xsd. I'm convinced. It'll take a lot more than this to move HL7 and ASTM (among others) as WC3 is seen as 'the authority.'
- This is – by far – the best tablet PC I've ever used.
- Tangibly taster than my Toshiba M400
- Waaaay faster than the Lenovo X41
- Same wonderful form-factor as the X41
- Beautiful screen
- Long battery life
Vista drivers not out yet for this (1/30/07) – but many XP drivers apparently work. YMMV.
Reminder: If you are using a laptop or tablet in an outpatient setting – battery life is NOT a criterion for choosing a laptop. Why not? Because you should buy an AC adaptor for every exam room. When you put the tablet/notebook down – plug it in. You'll never need to change batteries and you will be plugged-in at least 1/2 of the time.
I don't think that this is really how the AMA feels. I've been involved with a project in which the AMA is quite supportive of P4P. Hmmm
