Change is in the air…

Well I have done it. Yesterday I hopped a one way flight to Seattle. I am starting a new job here at a startup called Positronic.  What do we do? Well I really may not say but I will be focused on advanced data mining from the web. It is not healthcare related. The company is located in downtown Seattle right near Pike Place Market, with great water views.

If anyone wants to get together at SIIM which is coming here in a couple weeks drop me a line.

I am going to try to post more although the focus of the content may shift. I have not decided. The last couple of months  have gone by in the blink of an eye.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my readers. 🙂

Blog Emergency

Please see Dalai’s post. He is being pressured to censor his blog. Please post comments in support of him. When people place pressure on bloggers who call them out it is truly a sign of cowardice. Blogs are an open forum where anyone can comment. I will not censor any non spam comment posted to my blog. Dissent is good. I am sure Dalai would do the same should you respond.

And to the said company, you know who you are, look at how Microsoft embraced the blog world. Not by censoring the conversation but by being part of it. Intimidation only works so much.

My Blogging Absense

I have been bad. I have not blogged in a long time. I was doing pretty good there for a while. I have been working on Yottalook a lot. So much to do as a startup. I have learned a tremendous amount about developing a business, what it takes to develop a business plan, how financing works, how to keep books and lots more. So I am going to try and be a more regular poster.

GE Healthcare Blogs

GE has launched a couple of blogs. They are somewhat corporate sounding but I will give them a chance. Remember GE, your employees and customers need to be able to criticize you on your blog in an open environment. That is the mark of truly impressive organization.

RSNA Blogger Meetup

So the blogger meetup did not work out as planned. We could not find eachother in NetWorks, which at 5:30 PM during RSNA is a mad house. I did however meet Dalai from Dalai PACS. I had a great time talking with him about IT issues in Radiology. Next year I want to have a more formal event, possibly with some sponsorship or something. Maybe a blogger panel or some kind of discussion would be good too. I will write more when I get home but I don’t know when that will be since it is snowing here in Chicago and lots of flights have been cancelled.
