Every time I go to the doctor or dentist lately they are having some challenge with a new computer system. This probably represents progress. Though interface designers could use some work on avoiding context menus.

My mother worked as a health systems researcher (aka an actuary) for many years before retiring.  She had a strong belief (backed by no small amount of data) that easier access of patients to their own medical records improved outcomes significantly.  My take away from this is that the second order affects of things in the medical industry can be hard to predict easily.  I also think (as Richard alluded) that greater use of EMR can lead to easier access to large anonymized datasets for research purposes.

Loving the direct comparison between 60s and 90s childrens books. Meta: I wonder what the retweeting standards will be on Google+

Loving the interface for adding people to circles, but it's a bit grotty when I have multiple contacts for the same person, needs a way to merge them.

It's 2011, do I really have to use my browser's reload button to see when things change on Google+?

So phase one is all the early adopters getting invites, recreating their friend graphs, and nitpicking the design of PLUS. That should last a week or two. What's phase two? If it is just Facebook but 14.7% better, is it going to stick? Hopefully they have 37signals style 1.1 features to roll out in July.

Maybe Google+ will the serve the role of Steven Levy's "Great Facebook Reset" (http://www.wired.com/magazine/2011/02/pr_levy_facebookfriends/). Stranger things have happened.
