Sad day for +TWiT Enthusiasts....

I was greatly shocked and then saddened when I heard +Leo Laporte announce today that not only was the chat room going away, but more importantly, the behind the scenes live broadcast of TWiT was going away too. 

One of the greatest things I loved about watching the +TWiT Network was seeing how transparent it was. You got to see everything. What went on in between shows, how the shows got setup, and we even got to hear what people were thinking. It was something that no other network has ever done and it was amazing to me! So amazing, that it inspired me to start The #IBD  Round Table Discussion podcast from +The Crohns Colitis Effect page. 

You could tell that while Leo was announcing this that it was a very hard decision for him. It wasn't something that he really wanted to do. But unfortunately, the internet trolls has forced his hands. It's really a shame that something so inspiring, so great, and so different than anything / everyone else has to change because of either someone or someones. 

I'm truly going to miss the connection that I really felt to +TWiT, it's employees, and it's hosts. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to be a avid watcher of all the shows, but for people like me who loved to keep the live stream on all day long, I'm going to be losing that special connection that made TWiT so different than every place else. 

+Leo Laporte - I'm really sorry that you, your employees, and your family are having to deal with such craziness! The work you do is amazing and I GREATLY enjoy it! Maybe one day we'll be lucky enough that the trolls will go away and we can get back a piece of TWiT that made it so special.

365-Gigapixel Panorama of Mont Blanc Becomes the World’s Largest Photo :- Post-processing and stitching the 46 terabytes afterwards took 2 months, and the resulting 365-gigapixel photo would be as large as a soccer field if printed out at 300dpi.

What does #WorldIBDDay  mean to me and how should we be talking about it
 
World #IBD  Day 2015

World IBD Day is not a time to celebrate... But it is a time to raise awareness and help the general public understand what people with IBD go through. In this new blog post, I talk about what #Crohns and #UlcerativeColitis are and try to give the general public a better understanding of it!

+ZDogg MD is revolutionizing the doctor / patient relationship! 

Please take a moment to watch his +TEDMED video below! I was privledged enough to attend #HealtheVoices15  this weekend, sponsored by Janssen BioTech and +Everyday Health. His talk was AMAZING and I'm completely understating that! 
 
+ZDoggMD appears at #HealtheVoices15

I plan on writing many blog posts over the next couple of days recapping my experience from this weekends HealtheVoices15 conference hosted by Janssen Biotech​ and +Everyday Health​. In the mean time, I feel like I have to share this AMAZING talk given by Dr. Zubin Damania, also known as +ZDogg MD. Even calling his talk amazing is a complete understatement. 

Dr. Damania is completely changing healthcare and how patients receive healthcare! His work at +Turntable Health in Las Vegas is revolutionizing patient - doctor care! 

Please take a moment to watch his video below where he talks at +TEDMED​. It's very similar to the talk he gave at the conference this weekend. It's 20 minutes long, but I can't stress enough to watch all 20 minutes of it! You won't be disappointed!

We need medical teams that are willing to listen. We need medical teams that are humanized and no longer robotic.

Too often doctors dismiss what patients and caregivers are saying and feeling because the data doesn't "support it".

While I'm a HUGE fan of science, not everything is "black and white". What is a patients to do when they fall into the "grey area"?
 
+Frank Garufi Jr. +The Crohns Colitis Effect just discussed the awful situation he experienced with a pediatric GI when his tiny son's #Crohns was not yet diagnosed. No parent or child should have to endure that treatment. We need medical reform for overall bedside manner, but especially in Peds world. We also need specialists to open their ears and listen to patients not just what they learned in a book. #ibd #inflammatoryboweldisease #crohnsdisease #ulcerativecolitis

The worlds first publicly, positive, introvert you'll ever meet! It serves me well
Introduction
Please visit my Google+ Page - The Crohn's Colitis Effect

I think my tagline describes me pretty accurately... 

I'm a proud father of two great boys. Domenic is my oldest, who has Crohn's Colitis Disease ( see my Google+ Page for information on it ) and my youngest, Anthony. It might sound cliche to say they are my world, but saying anything less just wouldn't be truthful. 

I truly believe that I'm blessed... I not only have two wonderful boys, but I also have a career that I absolutely love! I've been a Network Engineer for a little over 15 years now and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else! My Father always told me that you know when you've made it when you get out of bed in the morning and can't wait to get to work... Well, that's me! I not only love the type of work I do, but I also love where I do it. I work for a private high school, St. Augustine Prep in Richland, N.J. The best part about my job is that everything I do there, I know I'm impacting the lives of our students, in a positive way, for years to come. 

Are you curious about what circles to put me in?? Well, anyone you want! :) Seriously, I post about a wide range of stuff. Anything and everything that comes to mind.
