Is the Twitter RT irrelevant? | Social Media Today

Joel Postman, the author of this post is at Cisco. The point that is brought up is whether to acknowledge where you got something from, in your own Twitter posts.

it brings up for me two things:

1. Yes - its good to know the source (even if its at the end of a chain)
2. Why can't this be "kept" out of the twitter 140 characters, but stored elsewhere (where?) and accessed when needed

What do you think?

I'm getting on the Offensive for Health

If you click on the title of the post, you will get to a video which shows some of the work I have been involved in over the past couple years, with the US Air Force Medical Services.

This work reminds me that we live in a US health ecosystem experiencing

"The folly of rewarding healthcare while hoping for health"

I'm inspired by a 2311 year old quote by Herophiles 300 B.C.

When Health is absent
Wisdom cannot reveal itself
Art cannot become manifest
Strength cannot be exerted
Wealth is useless and
Reason is powerless.

This reminds me to

Start living as though not just my life depends on it, but the lives of many others who are and will be affected by my actions and the world I will leave behind.

Especially here in Silicon Valley where to the rest of the world, we are living in the future, what we choose to do, matters.
