It’s official, we are having an informal gathering of health IT bloggers and readers on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8:30 p.m. at Hennessey’s Gaslamp, 708 4th Ave., San Diego. That’s walking distance from the convention center and most of the HIMSS hotels. Click here for a map.
Admission is free, just pay for your own food and drink. You think any of us actually make any money with these blogs?
Also, I am now a published author, not merely a media jackal. I wrote the January-February issue of Doctor’s Digest, entitled, “Technology in Practice.” (See if you can guess what the topic is.)
While technically a periodical, it’s bound like a paperback book, my name is on the title page and the editor referred to my draft as a “manuscript.” Plus, I wrote the whole thing, somewhere in the neighborhood of 34,000 words. Sounds like a book to me.
Free online subscriptions right now cover only the six 2005 editions. If you weren’t one of the 110,000 or so physicians and practice managers who got a copy in the mail, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll see what I can do about bringing some extras with me to HIMSS next month—as if I won’t have enough to carry without them.
