Public Editor Margaret Sullivan on changing times at The New York Times. For PR people and corporate journalists, a good inside look at what constitutes news these days for the Times, and who is making the editorial decisions. 
The goal of The Times’s new Express Team is to help reposition the paper in a changing information landscape. Some readers are uneasy.

Great blog post by former +MIT Media Lab director and serial entrepreneur Frank Moss. As founder of the Lab's New New Media Medicine research practice and co-founder/investor in digital health care startups, he's been on the bleeding edge (pun intended) of digital health care for years. 
My recent work in the digital health space has made me realize that we technologists can’t approach medicine the same way we’ve approached media and music. Healthcare is a different beast.

What happens when Moore's Law maxes out? 
A major technological shift is needed in the next few years if computer chips are to keep improving.

Great blog post from my colleague Jennie Duggan of Northwestern University on how to model and optimize queries at scale across multiple data models and database engines, your classic Big Data Variety problem. Read why she and her fellow ISTC Big Data researchers think that polystores will succeed where traditional data federation to date has failed.
 
New on the blog: Polystore systems offer a fresh approach to challenge of integrating and using diverse data types at scale - a challenge previously approached (with not much success) by "data federation." ISTC for Big Data PI Jennie Duggan of +Northwestern University offers a look under the hood at the novel BigDAWG polystore system being developed by the ISTC team - specifically how it models and optimizes queries that span diverse data models and database engines. 
By Jennie Duggan, Northwestern University. At VLDB 2015, the ISTC for Big Data team presented a demo of the BigDAWG polystore system. This blog post highlights some of the research challenges we are exploring as we build this novel system. As we extend the VLDB prototype, we are investigating ...

1 in 3 Americans has been affected. Another example of how our institutions are failing us.
One out of every three Americans was affected by a healthcare record breach last year, or more than 113 million people, up more than ten-fold from 12.6 million in 2014, according to a report released this morning by Bitglass.

For all you PP fans, in case you always wondered about this (I did). Read what marketers can learn from her in this blog post from the archives http://thefussymarketer.blogspot.com/2009/12/marketing-of-paula-poundstone.html
"I didn't really have all that much actual material, and so at a point, I would read from the box or the package of whatever food I had. I have no idea why."

In the future, health care will be continuous vs. episodic, says Twine Health co-founder Frank Moss. For these and other insights on "rewiring" health care, see Frank speak at the upcoming upcoming IEEE Pulse one-day conference "Electronic Health Records: What Went Wrong? Can it Be Fixed?" Feb 28 in Las Vegas http://onstage.embs.org/ehr/ and/or watch this video.

Forrester's take on the Internet of things isn't that shocking--the industry has developed with little thought about security--but the time frames are jarring nonetheless.

Great paper by Eric Lander about CRISPR's long, winding and largely serendipitous road to genome editing, with many persistent, independent young researchers behind it.

Among his conclusions: "The history also illustrates the growing role in biology of 'hypothesis-free' discovery based on big data. The discovery of the CRISPR loci, their biological function, and the tracrRNA all emerged not from wet-bench experiments but from open-ended bioinformatic exploration of large-scale, often public, genomic datasets. “Hypothesis-driven” science of course remains essential, but the 21st century will see an increasing partnership between these two approaches."

Story
Tagline
Thinker, Marketing Writer, Muse & Creative-Communications Problem-Solver for Businesses
Introduction
Janice L. Brown specializes in using communications to position technology ventures, launch new companies and products, and develop industry thought leader programs. I have worked with technology companies since 1979 (beginning with Data General, Prime Computer and Computervision) and with health care, biotechnology and medical devices businesses since 1978. I've  been involved with Internet marketing and social media since 1990 (bulletin boards on CompuServe), and have helped launch online communities, a search engine and a browser.
 
When I'm not working with entrepreneurs, I am thinking about working with entrepreneurs - and sometimes reading, writing for personal enjoyment, cooking, watching films, learning languages, hiking and traveling to places that require at least two airplanes to get there. I also make citizen's arrests for poor grammar and evasive language.
Bragging rights
I am the luckiest consultant in the world. I have worked with some terrific entrepreneurs to help launch several dozen start-ups. My work has won numerous awards. More importantly, many of my clients stay with me for years, bringing me into their next ventures. And often becoming friends.
