Jan 13, 2012 · Taming the daily social-media information flood in Platforms, Software, and Tools

Zite is great. The one reason I like Flipboard better is that I can integrate my content (Google Reader RSS Feeds, Facebook, and Twitter accounts) in vs. constantly curating content like I do in Zite. I use Flipboard as my “personal” content manager and Zite as my “discovery” tool.

Jan 8, 2012 · Taming the daily social-media information flood in Platforms, Software, and Tools

I’m totally addicted to Flipboard. I can add all my RSS feeds, Facebook, and Twitter all in one spot. Anything I can’t read at the time is instantly pushed to Instapaper. It’s limited to iPhone and iPad right now, but I’m guessing there will be browser support soon.

Evernote is the best creation on the web!!! I don’t think I would survive my daily work in the lab without it. I even locked my keys in my car a few weeks ago and Evernote saved me by reminding me of my door lock combination. I had placed it in Evernote when I purchased the vehicle and never thought I would need it.

I have worked with the Evernote people as a beta tester since they started. I have been pushing them to create a secure version that physicians and researchers could use that would be HIPPA compliant, but they still haven’t seen the light.

Sep 30, 2011 · The Rise of "public" sharing of health info in Give & Get Advice

Thanks for the nondescript position mention in the post (;

I guess I was thinking about how much info can a physician offer? There has to be a “acceptable” line between diagnosis over the net and the (from the patient perspective) alway “go to” answer of “come to our clinic, we are the best”.

Sep 29, 2011 · The Rise of "public" sharing of health info in Give & Get Advice

I was surfing the web tonight and came upon this person on G+ who is desperate for information on his mystery illness.

I believe that we are going to see this more and more as people get comfortable sharing their personal medical issues on the web. I guess this opens a large ethical can of worms. How can we respond to this person? Should we even respond?

I think that we could all agree that we would like to help this person, but what would be the best way to do that? In a large medical institution like Mayo, it would be hard to find the right specialist that might be able to answer this question. Can anyone think of a way that technology could help connect these “public” sharers of information with someone that might be able to help?

Just tossing this out as an interesting trend that we might want to be prepared for as social media becomes an invaluable tool in health care.

Glad you got something to work.

FYI that was handbrake (stupid iPad autocorrect).

Looks like this is a known issue with iMovie 11. It’s strange the it just started happening. Here is a link to a discussion of iMovie audio issues.

Did you do this with a flip camera? Wondering if support for the Flip in most video apps will be going away.

I have an old Flip and had to decode the file with Handbreak before using it in iMovie or I had similar issues.

Keep us posted. Tech issues like this are a big factor in adoption of social media in healthcare. Perhaps we need a “tech 911” area?

Jun 1, 2011 · Tools for managing work flow in Platforms, Software, and Tools

I’m a “modified” GTD user. I started with David Allen’s method and then modified it for my own use. I have blended in a lot of other methods such as “inbox zero” and “7 Habits”.

Like Lee, I like Omnifocus for the Mac, but we are not in a position to purchase it in my work unit, so I used a number of different “low tech” tricks to keep up with my Todo and project planning.
