A relatively quiet day-before-the-Fourth ... it's always a bit weird when Holidays fall *on* the weekend, right? Anyway if you've followed me and my blog for any time, you know there's only one thing for me to do tomorrow: race the annual Round the Island race at Westlake. The race is around the Island :) a task somewhat "complicated" by the presence of a low bridge under which one must either capsize or lower one's mast...
Google Earth turns ten! Wow. Interesting to remember that when Google first bought Keystone and then launched this incredible service, they were not yet "Google", just an upstart search engine with a funny name and some big ambitions. Google Earth remains entirely amazing, familiarity might hide it a bit, but how cool is it to pick anything on Earth - the pyramids, the North Pole, the Champs Elysees, or your girlfriend's house - and poof you can see it. Very cool.'
Novartis on digitizing medicine in an aging world. A big vision. Interesting that so much of the "innovation" in medicine comes from pharma companies, right?

So have you been listening to Beats 1? Yeah, it's okay - I think the DJs are excellent - but then there's always a song I don't care for (usually rap or hip-hop) and then I change the channel. It's a good option but only one of many. (And with streaming services like Slacker, there are many... )
