Notes On What I’m Doing

Hi, readers. How are you? I hope you’ve been enjoying life.

I just want to update you on what I’ve been enjoying and some of my plans.

First, Health Is Social has turned out to be a pleasure – it’s created a new niche to discuss the intersection of technology and health.

I’m having a great time with the project – and it was through it that I got my first chapter published in a book. That book was my friend Bob Fine’s The Best of Social.

If you subscribe to HealthIsSocial Newsletter, you”ll get a nice flow of good stuffs and find out what more about what’s going on over there.

Second, I’ll continue to serve on the Advisory Board for Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. It’s an exciting opportunity which I hope will tug healthcare farther into the 21st Century.

Third, I’m looking to build small groups of passionate people who want to really get into the vibe of things in the 21st Century. More on that as developments proceed.

Fourth, I have a confession. Well, not so much a confession, but an opening-up.

I never felt like I belonged in the 20th Century. I was never good at following rules; there was never much sense that the little guy and lady could truly voice themselves; and I felt like my career was doomed to be a series of paid enslavements – in spite of the successes I enjoyed as a younger man.

Things feel differently now. There’s definitely something in the air.

I’m not sure it’s all good – but I do think we have been gifted with a dangerous opportunity.

Technology is now deeply embedded in us. There nothing we can do about that now.

Social Media isn’t social. People are (hopefully). Let’s not think otherwise.

But these media can be glorious opportunities to enrich the way we live.

Anyhoo, that’s what I’m up to these days.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

Your readership has changed my life forever.

Love and well wishes,

Phil
