The New Wireless Wave

I used to take notes when I covered an event. It is easier to take a picture of a slide than to scribble it in a notepad. It is more accurate and I understood why other people were doing it too. People in the audience would raise their phone and take a picture. Lately people have raising their iPads to take a picture. If several people in the same row take a picture at the same time, it looks like they are doing the wave at a sporting event or making a bid at an auction.

It occurred to me that some tablet maker could put a crowd on some bleachers and give some sort of Jumbotron display like you see at North Korean political rallies. Somewhere there is a Youtube video waiting to be made.

Digitized medical records are adding to the tidal wave of big data. More than forty percent of physicians are using their iPads to access that data with over 17,000 apps. While their opportunities using publicly available government health statistics, most money will be made in analyzing and reporting information to health care providers and patients. No matter what kind of health care system you have, it will have big data and you will need the tools do deal with it.
