I think most of us believe(d) Ted Cruz was a Texas anomaly -- not a smart and serious guy. This article argues that he is both intelligent and calculating (though in my opinion, the numbers don't add up when he does the arithmetic.) Worth a look.

This is a super important conversation but I can't help but make the connection between End of Life at the Dinner Table and Death. So courtesy of Monty Python, a slightly different take on the conversation:

Maybe smiling helps us face our mortality a little easier.

I think you have to see how you like to operating system. I am pretty happy with my Nokia 920 but not everyone is going to like Windows 8 on the phone. I went a played with a few laptops with Windows 8 yesterday and it may be a while before I think about one of those.

We all have dreams! I can get behind this one...
The “selfie” is a new phenomenon that entered the social scene in the early 2000s. There is controversial buzz about the appropriateness of self-images. There are studies showing correlations between

Announce of my arrival at MUSC on the main academic website today...very kind of folks here

At MUSC we are Changing What is Possible -- and at the Biomedical Informatics Center, were making that happen through an informatics enabled learning health system.

Moscow (AFP) - Russia's Soviet-era flag carrier Aeroflot unveiled its own budget airline Thursday that will have no reclining seats or business class while promising fares nearly half those charged by the competition.

http://edcetera.rafter.com/not-just-for-moocs-anymore-integrating-badges-on-campus/

I learned of this approach from my brother Edward Lenert who is an innovator in educational pedagogy and wonder about its applications to Informatics education. A Masters or a PhD is about training folks to think a certain way (professionalism at the Master's level, scientific reasoning at the PhD level). I think it is valuable for employers to know what the skill set that given student has upon graduation. I am a bit disappointed that employers are not looking for bright minds to train--rather they want immediate productivity, but education needs to respond to the market. Separating degrees from certification for skills is one approach to meeting the markets needs without compromising our values with regard to training students how to think (which in the long run is far more valuable than any specific skill.)

Is there a role for concierge medicine after health reform? Enhanced access made possible by an annual retainer appears to reduce hospitalization. 
We assessed the impact of the MDVIP personalized preventive care model on hospital utilization and found the MDVIP members’ rates were substantially lower than nonmembers’.

Last blog on the Nokia Lumia 920

Well, it's a part of my life now. I've transitioned off the iPhone. I have learned to love an integrated directory with LinkedIn pictures of people who I don't recognize, wondered how I could live without haptic feedback when I push a button on screen, held family conferences with the great speaker phone, found my way around a strange city with the maps, etc. My music? Well, I can stream from the Nokia site when I have Internet which is much better than Pandora but the stuff on my Apple account is gone. Maybe I'll figure out how to defeat the copy protection one day. The induction charging--still cool. Had one or two glitches--figuring out how to reboot the phone took a trip back to the store, which I used as an excuse to get some Bar-b-que from Sonny Bryants...would I take an iPhone 5 in trade?eh...probably not. Still some rough spots--the NY Times wanting me to use EITHER my tablet or my iPhone for access--stuff like that--more corporate greed mostly. When something interesting happens, I'll post again. But like all great technology my Lumia has gone transparent.
