When Technology Goes Awry

Last month, I published a peer-reviewed essay in the Communications of the ACM, one of the major trade journals in computer science. It’s titled, “When Technology Goes Awry.” At the time of its publication, in mid-April, there were a few other things going on in the world that were distracting me, so I didn’t mention it then. I want to circle back now and briefly highlight the piece’s big ideas, as they’re relevant to many of our discussions here. This article provides a more academic foundatio...

It’s so important to just take another moment with your patients

Medical schools around the country remain closed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, swapping hands-on learning experience on wards and within the operating room for Zoom lectures and telehealth visits. Ten months ago, this was the furthest thing I imagined as I began my third year of medical school, filled with nervous excitement to move […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Finding a balance

Photo by Wiros on Wikimedia Commons Here's another response to a question I received from participants during the recent webinar I presented for EDEN. You can watch the entire webinar on YouTube at this link. The question is one of several I couldn't answer in full because of time constraints, so here is the question again with a few additional thoughts: A major challenge at the moment, especially for teachers, but also translated to students, is keeping up with the curriculum. This lim...

How a sojourn atop a mountain in Vietnam changed my life forever

As the gentle rumbles of thunder became increasingly sonorous, the sharp crackles of lightning casting out the darkness of night, striking like the angry whips from a scorned martinet, and the torrential rain now cascading down from our awning like loose waterfalls, making heavy splashes around us every few seconds, I could taste the intoxicating […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Robert Fripp Releases Free Ambient Music to Get You Through the Lockdown: Enjoy “Music for Quiet Moments”

King Crimson’s master guitarist Robert Fripp has had a career long reputation as an autocrat, and exacting, difficult taskmaster. He’s named an album, a band, and a record company “Discipline.” Drummer Bill Bruford once described him as an “an amalgam of Stalin, Gandhi and the Marquis de Sade,” according to The Telegraph. But recently, there’s been some activity on Fripp’s social media that can only be described as “silly.” In lockdown with his wife of 34 years, singer and actor Toyah Wi...

It felt like a natural end to an isolating day. That morning, the cherry blossoms were in full bloom.  The streetlights shone against the budding […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

A Virtual Tour Inside the Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli Museum

Let us pray that organization expert Marie Kondo never comes within spitting distance of A Boy’s Room, part of the Studio Ghibli museum’s Where a Film is Born installation. It’s not likely that every single item in the massive (and no doubt well dusted) collection of books, postcards, hand tools, pictures, figurines, and other assorted tchotchkes pictured above sparks joy, but the suggestion is that any one of them might prove the gateway to a fantastical tale, such as those spun by the ...

Download Free Doctor Who Backgrounds for Virtual Meetings (Plus Many Other BBC TV Shows)

Enthusiasm for British television is a force of nature. That goes even more so for British television fandom outside Britain. All of us have known someone, or indeed been someone, who shifted their cultural allegiances wholesale after watching a single episode of, say, Monty Python's Flying Circus. But even that hugely influential comedy series commands only low-intensity worldwide devotion when set alongside Doctor Who, which has aired on the BBC in one form or another since 1963. One can expr...
