It is class reunion time at MIT, and as part of my 40th (eek!), we had a short visit with one of the robot researchers at the Media Lab. Here's a short video with an explanation from a student named Florian about a friendly little robot. (Click here if you cannot see the video.)
Among the alumni geeks present was health care's favorite patient advocate, e-Patient Dave deBronkart (seen here with William Roberts, Principal Research Scientist at Battelle, Columbus). At our 35th reunion, Dave was just able to attend after his run-in with kidney cancer. Now . . . well let's just say he participated fully in the celebrations.
