As you may have noticed, my blog hasn’t been nearly as active over the past 2 weeks. You can blame it all on my wife since I spend almost all of my vacation days from work over the past 2 weeks. That’s not completely true since the state actually gives a fair number of vacation days. However, it is true that I was on vacation and therefore this blog got transgressed.

Don’t worry, I haven’t fallen off the planet and I have a number of good posts waiting in the wings. I think it is good for me to have some breaks sometimes. Maybe I need to find someone else to contribute to my blog too. That way my absence won’t be so noticeable. Any takers?

I also have been dreaming lately about presenting at some conference somewhere. I think I have some decent content and could do a pretty good job. I’m just not sure how to really get started. Not to mention figuring out the funding mechanism for getting to those conferences. I’m seriously considering going to HIMSS, but I’m not sure that’s the right play for me. I think I would get an interesting taste of what hospitals are doing and probably be pretty disappointed with what I could take away. I’m not sure what other conferences there are around, but if anyone has any connections and wants to hook me up then please let me know.
