email addresses are not authenticated or very reliable.  They aere therefore repudiable. The authentication you'd offer woudl be that someone contacts you and says "did you sign this" making whatever attempt they choose to indicate what "this" is, and usually failing dismally by cryptological/security standards.

Repudiation is when they say "you signed this" and you say "No I didn't, no contract exists/that is not my opinion/I do not nad have never supported the course of action you declare has universal support" and they can't prove you did by waving an email... and neither cna they prove that you are incorrect when you say that they just fabricated a file that appears to be your signature, and the whole thing is a tissue of lies...

A cryptographic hash function indicates almost unmistakably the version of the document that you declare you signed.
(See SHA-2 and otehrs - the idea isn't complicated, the mathematics is, but examples of trapdoor fucntions that offer an example of how it works are not difficult)

A cryptographic hash function encrypted with a key - 4096 bits of data you generate and keep secret - ties the signature of that particular version of that document to (this particular version of) you.

The way in which it is determined that teh mangled garbage of a digital crypto signature is from your secret key is by doing a clever thing with the other half of that key, which you generated at the same time and then passed out ot the world (or for those who want to make it harder and less useful - the NHS perhaps - to some fraction of the world)

PGP/GPG is the software which does this stuff.  ROss Anderson at Cambridge is the guy who strikes fear into the hearts of bankers, whose crypto sucks, and who understands and writes abotu this stuff.  he is a good lecturer, to undergraduates and up, and you might get him to lecture a medical course or group on security 101 or somesuch.

I'm familiar with a lot of it, withough being able to genuinely show I understnad the workings.


Assertion: anyone who does not know what PGP is (I'd say who does not have a public key) should not make any arrangements around signature or security of electronic documents.


Now, an area in which the medical profession is extremely well arranged for PGP is the web of trust.  We identify each other, you sign my public key and I sign yours.  (PGP/GPG do the mechanics).  We then know that the keys involved are eachotehr's.  You sign someone else's key, with yours, and I then know that someone I know has identified and certified this key as being that person.

If the GMC wanted to do something useful for us, it would sign our keys...

Ken Masters published a piece last year debunking some of the data on 'brain activity' in lectures presented here. http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/0142159X.2014.916785

+Anne Marie Cunningham thanks for providing the additional resource. There was some grumblings at the time about the validity of the original study, in particular, small sample size.

You images are of text documents that have many more words than usually would be in the most text heavy presentation. Have any studies been done of eye-tracking in different projected presentations? 
You don't even read the slides you are reading. Part of your brain soon recognises that it isn't possible to read a whole slide and that the important information is contained in the title. The bigger bulletpoints contain som...

lovely account of the benefits of flipped class:) 
 
Just had my best ever class meeting.

A really great 'flipped environment' moment. Students had been having difficulties with understanding what the `index` method did in python (finds position of first occurrence of a substring in a string). So I planned on concentrating on that during the class. That's when the awesome started: the students took over :) They asked a bunch of great questions and we quickly arrived at wanting to find the position of all the occurrences (not just the first occurrence). So I wrote that up as a little challenge for next week (which includes an example string which is about our cats...).

This was such a fun meeting and I'm very thankful to the students for making it so. If I hadn't been using a flipped environment they would not have had enough base knowledge to be able to get to where we got (which is far further then I had planned on getting us).

Hello Barny
It would be great if this had some audio and explained who did what.
So I think that patient states goals and how important they are, and professional states probablilities. 
Great work!
