In response to urging by colleagues to share both my activities and my views of the world of healthcare informatics and beyond, I am finally doing so. 

Like my life and career, my topics will be far ranging. I hope my discussions will interest readers and stimulate thought and exploration. I encourage you to suggest topics you would like me to address. Click on The Surgical Word Book in the left column for the story of my writing this compilation of the surgical language, first released in 1981 and now in its 3rd edition, with a 4th in preparation.
