Could the gut microbiome be related to #autism?

The Apple ResearchKit sounds like a great idea to help share data from wearables for medical research. 
With ResearchKit, Apple has a new software framework it hopes will help turn the 700 million iPhones in users’ hands into medical diagnostic tools.

Wikipedia has the potential to be a terrific resource for health related information.  The problem is there can be a lot of erroneous information.  Medical students use Wikipedia but don't rely solely on this information, they compare it to other more "reputable" sources.  
Most say that they find erroneous information on Wikipedia but do not correct it.  
What if medical schools make critically appraising and correcting health information on Wikipedia as part of the curriculum or an elective scholarly activity?
Wikipedia gains growing attention as a provider of health information. This study aimed to investigate the use, relevance and challenges of Wikipedia among medical students.

+Holly Gooding  did you see this article?  Thought it is right up your alley!
This article evaluates whether the use of high school students as simulated patients who provide formative feedback enhances the capacity of medical students in their fifth year of training to initiate screening conversations and communicate effectively with adolescents about sensitive health issues.

Fascinating historical account of the response of scholars to the proliferation of books due to the invention of the printing press.  
Their sense of loss of control as they realized they no longer could "know everything" and their ideas for fixing this problem make for great reading.
Abstract. Contemporary discussions of information overload have important precedents during the years 1550-1750. An examination of the early modern period in Europe, including work of humanism, science, theology, and popular encyclopedias demonstrates that perceptions of information overload ...

+Andres Navedo I guess those scholars did not realize that information would be digital and searchable. Also they did not account for machine learning, artificial intelligence and natural language processing!

A 350 dollar watch that you need to charge for 5 hours to get a full charge and the battery will last a max of 24 hours. 
Some more details about the Apple Watch have surfaced just ahead of the 'Sprint Forward' event. Some sources related to the matter and with hands-on experience with the Watch have disclosed the details to 9To5Mac.

The wearables appear to be a tough nut to crack. The battery life is a key factor in user experience. If the wearable is supposed to track your activities and sleep when can you charge it?
If you stick a big battery into it, it becomes too heavy for it to be worn constantly and it heats up.
The more things you want it to do, bigger the battery drain.
In a way I love the Fitbit. It is small and light, does just a few things, does them well and reliably and the charge lasts > a week.
Maybe the better model is to have multiple small devices each for it own specific function.

When technology is good enough that a person would give up (amputate) a dysfunctional/nonfunctional hand to get a bionic hand. Amazing!
