I know a lot of people who are getting involved in webinars, streaming live video, and online video. One of the questions that I often get asked is "which camera is best?" This article provides the best answers that I've seen on the subject, and it happens to be written by my friend and colleague +Jan Ozer who is probably this the best expert on video that I know. He explains when a smartphone is good enough, and how to get the results you need at a price you can afford. This is a really excellent article.

According to an email I just received from the American Medical Association (AMA), the organization is supporting a bill in Congress that would expand the use of telemedicine in the U.S. This is important, as it is illegal in some situations for doctors to "treat" patients if they are not in their physical presence. The laws have lagged far behind our technology, and not only can telemedicine result in better outcomes and improved quality of life, but according to some studies it could save more than $180 million per year in healthcare costs.

Large, tabletop touch screens are undoubtedly cool. 3D printing is also cool. But when you combine them, printing special coasters for glasses that the table can identify automatically, it creates a unique wine tasting experience.

A tiny chip implanted behind a patient's retina can let them see light and shapes, restoring vision to the blind. #healthtech #ns

Implanted digital devices have to be the ultimate in “wearables;” they effectively become part of your body. Some digital implants are almost commonplace, such as the cochlear implants that can help the deaf hear again. One field in this area that has…

I tell college students and young job seekers that they don't need a resume; they need MANY resumes! You should prepare a resume for each job that you apply for, and if you don't know enough about the job to customize your resume for that opportunity, then you don't know enough to apply for the job.

This article makes a good start, but it falls short in two important ways. First, do some homework. Find out more about the company: what it does, what its challenges are in its industry. Has it been in the news lately? Why do you think they are hiring? Is it due to growth, to attrition, to handle a new acquisition, or to cut costs by replacing more expensive workers will less expensive ones?

Also, check to see if you know anyone in the company, or if anyone you know can introduce you to someone. A quick conversation with a person on the inside can help you customize your resume, and might even earn you a referral which can greatly increase your chances of getting an interview.

Do you know what a Sailor's Valentine is? It's a mosaic made from seashells that create geometric and floral patterns, sometimes with images or text. One of the most accomplished artists of this nearly-forgotten art is our good friend, Pam Boynton. (She's far too modest to admit just how talented she is.) One of her designs was actually used as the art for a postage stamp by Barbados. And now her beautiful book has been published: 220 pages with 310 color photos of Pam's work and more than a dozen other contemporary artists who create Sailor's Valentines. If you are going to be at the Sanibel Shell Show in Florida the first week of March (https://sites.google.com/site/thesanibelcaptivashellclub/annual-shell-show/2016-shell-show) you can meet her and have her sign a copy for you. Or you can order one through her website: http://www.pfboynton.com/. She does simply amazing work!
