Anyway we didn't end up getting a deer on Saturday but we had a great time hunting with a great old friend and being out in the woods together.

Am I the only one that would still rather write down what I need to do? Which (if any) of these types of programs work the best for you ?

For my birthday this year my wife got me a 50 " plasma tv! I couldn't believe it either and I'm not sure where she found the money but there it is. So why in the world would you care about my new tv? Well aside from looking quite nice and being humongous it also has a wifi internet connection that would allow you if you are so inclined, to view facebook and twitter via TV based apps. You can even tweet about a show right on screen while you watch it (though I am not sure what the point would be). One of the much more useful things (in my opinion) is being able to watch Netflix or Youtube right through the TV. Of course I could do so through my Xbox or Ps3 but its just one less step and would be nice for people who do not have those machines. I am really impressed at how well those two things work and amazed at how far the afformentioned services have come since their inception.
Doesn't seem so long ago that my computer made sounds like it was exploding (dialup) when I wanted on the internet and I had to record shows on things called VHS tapes.
Who knows where we go from here.

So what we do that sort of thing all the time right? I am reminded when my Grandma comes to town of just how much harder it was to share pictures and all the other happenings of our lives not so long ago. Nearly every time I see her she has at least a couple envelopes full of pictures to give to me.
Technology is something else huh?
... And now here she is sorry you had to read through my rambling. Enjoy!

I have not used the service as I am not older nor sick or hurting at the moment but it looks like it would be very helpful to patients and I thought it was a really interesting use of social media by a company. These are not the social media channels we usually think of I guess you could say they are of the intranet variety but they are definitely a new way of connecting to patients, breaking down walls in communication with people that can be very important when something is going wrong with your health.
What interesting or even "homegrown" uses of social media have you all seen lately and what do you think of the hospital's new idea?
Thanks for reading. Share your thoughts and I'll see you in another week!
