I couldn’t help but post this today after spending quite a bit of time last week talking with folks about social media use and its reflection on our professional selves. It’s a very short piece (under 7 minutes), and while this isn’t the most electric talk I’ve heard from the folks at TED, the content [...]
I had hoped to post this last week, but my parent’s house (still) has dial-up speed internet, so getting any video to load was impossible. Many of you have already seen this, but just in case you haven’t, it’s a terrific and simple message:
By now you’ve undoubtedly heard about the guilty verdict in Steubenville. You can read any variety of news coverage of the trial, so I am not going to post articles about the proceedings here (although kudos to the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence and NSVRC for their excellent daily recaps [188.8.131.52 and their commentary on the verdict]).

Today is International Women’s Day, and in the spirit of the day I thought I would post a TED talk by Sheryl WuDunn. If you’ve never read her book, Half the Sky (co-authored with her husband, Nicholas Kristof), I encourage you to do so. There’s also a new Half the Sky game on Facebook, for [...]

Today in my keynote talk, I will be talking about innovation. One of the people whose ideas on this subject have been inspiring is Steven Johnson (check out his TED talk here). For me, this video says so much about what we need to consider when we think about innovation and its application to our [...]
A happy Monday morning from rainy and cold Washington, DC. It’s a fine day to hunker down with a cup of tea and read. So let’s not waste any time, shall we? Here’s what I’ve been reading (and watching) since last we spoke:
Good information, creatively (and simply) delivered: (AsapSCIENCE via Jezebel)
This was recently posted on TED and I absolutely love it. You don’t have to be an aid worker in a distant country to get the general lesson in this pointed and very funny talk by Ernesto Sirolli. It speaks volumes about entrepreneurship and management and my guess is that if you listen hard enough, [...]
Thought you might enjoy this video from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which addresses much of what we do as forensic healthcare providers (and if I’m not mistaken, includes an IAFN board member, which is very cool).
