3rd 2012 Barefoot 1/2 Marathon in the Books
This morning I completed the Sam Costa 1/2 Marathon which is part of plan to complete 12 barefoot races this year. The weather for this race was perfect which made for comfortable running for most of the race. I wasn’t able to train for this race like I wanted due to having to take a week off for illness. As is evident in my splits below, I really need to work improving my conditioning in...

Early Reports on "the new iPad" from Physicians
Since the first iPad was launched it was labeled as the device that could finally be the right for physicians rounding in hospitals. While the first 2 versions of the iPads have been great devices they have had mixed results in the clinical settings due to some of the applications being used by the physicians. This may be changing with the new iPad due to the following: Voice Dictation Some...
Why I am done with Google + →
Several weeks ago the attached story described how the social service from Google is a ghost town. Since this article was written, I have came to the same conclusion for the following reasons and therefore won’t be on Google + that much in the future. Google + is designed for primary use on a desktop or laptop device which I am using less and less each day. The only time I am on one of...

iPads used to bolster physician training, speed up... →
The success of the iPad in the clinical setting is highly dependent on the design of the user interface of the EMR. Based upon the EMRs that I have been involved with not one of them have been conducive to the touch interface. This issue is really noticeable in the large scale EMRS.

While I agree with most of the items in Brian’s post here there are a few points additional ones, from a healthcare perspective, I would like point out. The retina display will definitely increase the requests from clinicians wanting to use the higher resolution screen when viewing images. My biggest concern on LTE will be on how quickly will the data usage be consumed and how will that...
Numecent's New Virtualization Solution →
This article from Business Insider is interesting on how companies are innovating new virtualization/cloud services. However, I find it hard to believe that companies, like Microsoft, that rely on licensing will be on-board with this solution without some hefty software agreement. Just look at On Live as an example.
Next Race is Scheduled
Today I signed up my next 2012 half marathon by registering for the Sam Costa (www.samcosta.com) on March 24th. I am a little behind on training for this race as I had to take a week off due to family illnesses. This will be just another challenge on my road to 12 in 2012. post via email.

Switching my blog to Tumblr
Over the next few months I am going to switch my blog over to Tumblr to see if I like it as a platform better than Blogger. It’s not that I have a major issue with Blogger but the platform just seems out of date. Ideally, I would move my blog to a service like Square Space but that comes with a monthly price so as a stop gap I am on Tumblr for now.
