This article in HBR suggests that based on a 2014 study pen and paper would be better at meetings than a laptop.  The problem is the study setting is students watching a video and taking notes and then testing their recall. 
Meetings are not videos, and they tend to require work to be done based on decisions arrived at and communications about these decisions rather than a test to be taken to recall facts. 
Even if writing in long hand does help with better understanding of content, you can do this with a device like the #SurfacePro3 with  #OneNote  and a stylus. 
Research shows the many benefits of taking notes by hand.

Wow 9 billion dollars - add that to the billions already paid to docs to adopt EHRs.

And until we can get over some of our privacy and big data fears in healthcare we are not going to see any return on that investment.

How many citizens and cops know what the rights are when a person is stopped for a minor offence?  How many citizens question a cop order even if it violates their rights, how many cops ever expect such an order to be not followed?

+Andres Navedo workplace based assessment probably needs a culture before it will occur.
The final very unfortunate outcome which should never have happened makes one hope that this video will prompt a culture change.

Why Wi-Fi Sense (on #Windows10) may make a lot of sense for small business.  It might get visitors to connect with them on Facebook!

The #MajorityIllusion similar to the filter bubble explains how one can be deluded into extrapolating one's observations of a small group to the majority. It is like taking a convenience sample and treating it like a truly random sample of the population.
 
I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.

If you have #Cisco VPN, read this before doing a #Windows10 upgrade.  Found this the hard way while upgrading a Lenovo Yoga from 8.1 to 10.
