I’ve been deep reading deep into all things tech this week. From new sci-fi books (Seveneves by Neil Stephenson and the Culture series by Iain Banks) to new Kickstarter campaigns to meeting new startup founders and listening to their pitches for funding.
Here are a few things that I found interesting this week:
I’m also actively looking for medical / health / wellness publications that are online and produce good content that is relevant to any health professional. Any ideas? It’s proving a lot harder then I thought it would be to find an online publication that puts out good content that is of interest to their audience.
It’s cold brew coffee time! If you’ve never done it, get a big mason jar, add five scoops of ground coffee or espresso beans, shake it up, then put it in the fridge over night. Strain it in the morning and enjoy.
Now to drive down the Gardiner to The Beach and experience the joy that is driving in Toronto. Plus experience the joy of my first baby shower!
For the past seven weeks I have been searching for a word.
I don’t think that searching is the right word in this case. Doesn’t quite get my point across.
No, I’ve been hunting for a word. A single word. One word that put everything else in my life on hold. One word that made falling asleep a living nightmare and waking up like a sweat drenched summers day. I have spent long moments sitting staring out the window, racking my brain over the right way to say it. This single word has been so elusive from me that I’ve felt like I’m lost in a forest and forgotten where I wanted to go. I’ve spent a lot of time sitting and looking up at the sky.
Well no more. I found that word cowering in a dark dusty dank corner of my mind and I dragged it kicking and screaming like a five year old throwing a tantrum and thrust it into the air high above my head. Just like He-man, with my arm holding that word high above my head, I shouted “By the power of Gray Skull!” and lightning coarsed through my body. It was electrifying!
The word that I’ve been hunting for? It’s name is tech. Yes, tech. TECH!
I’ve sat in countless meetings in the past four weeks bantering about technology this and technology that. I’ve reviewed a few patents and debated the finer points of intellectual property law with some of the best and brightest. My life has been consumed by technology and everything tech and that overused overhyped buzz word is the one that will bring so much clarity to a group of people who need it so badly.
It has been a battle of epic proportions and I’m glad to see it done. The thinking is done, now it’s time to execute. Sniper style.
