ConvergenceRI is born

@ConvergenceRI Welcome to the birth of ConvergenceRI, a new online subscription newsletter offering news and analysis at the convergence of health, science, technology and innovation in Rhode Island. It is the brainchild of Richard Asinof @RichardAsinof, who says,

“ConvergenceRI will fill a critical information need, covering Rhode Island’s innovation ecosystem in a cohesive, cogent and comprehensive fashion.”

“Rhode Island’s knowledge economy is on the cusp of a major growth spurt,” Asinof continued. “Its size, its connective sense of neighborhood, its embrace of health care reform and patient-centered changes in health care delivery, its maturing life sciences, biosciences and med-tech sectors, its emergence as a new hub for brain research, and its investment in transforming Providence’s former Jewelry District into a Knowledge District are all critical factors.”

The online newsletter will be published weekly every Monday, 48 times a year, with two-week breaks at the end of December and at the beginning of July.
