    The Future of Medicine through Google Glass

    Experiencing Google Developer Office Hours

    I had the pleasure this past week to attend Google Glass Developer Office Hours and Design Sprint, held at the “Base Camp” high above Chelsea Market in Mid-town Manhattan. As a member of the Google Glass Explorers, I’ve learned that Google is not the typical software company. They do not follow the norms many of us have come to take for granted from large organizations. For one, they treat us beta testers as members of the team. They’ll take my calls, answer emails and meet in person as often as needed to help developers become the best that they can be.

    iMoot 2013

    Since Tuesday, I’ve been attending the International iMoot and I’m quite amazed at how much I’ve learned.  What is an iMoot you ask? Moodle (open source learning management system) conferences are call Moodle Moots.  An iMoot is a virtual, online conference that runs 24 hours a day with keynotes and presentations by users and experts from all around the globe.  There are also forums and the live presentations include a lively chat.  So I’ve watched sessions in the middle of the day and a couple at 3 am and 5 am.  I could see the recordings later on but the chat is truly incredible and I love to converse with…

    Google I/O from my recliner

    There is something wonderful about spending two days watching I/O sessions live from home.  Yes, I wish I was there in person for the entire experience.  Conferences are the ultimate breeding ground of innovation, the hive mind is palpable at Autodesk University which I attend yearly.  One assumes that the level of brilliance at I/O must light Moscone with it’s glow.  Wish I could be there and the goal for next year is to go. But Google brings so much to live streaming via YouTube.  I of course watched the Glass presentations.  The hacking Glass session was brilliant! More today I assume, but alas I must go move into my new…
