I wrote an entire blog in the wrong blog editor. I have another blog, Alzheimer's Disease The Brand and spent the better part of the week researching network metanalysis, genetic variants for early-onset and late-onset AD and working on the book proposal of the same title but never noticed that I was creating it within the Data & Donuts site. Not too big of a pain but all of the links and images will need to be reloaded and checked before I can hit publish.
I am also hitting the road for 3 weeks for a combination of conferences, client meetings, and visiting my mom up north. I am lucky that numerous travels to DC, Boston, Bethesda, and NYC criss-cross with her availability and willingness to trek along. In my mind I envisioned wrapping up projects with a nice bow before leaving my office but as you all know--when does that ever happen?
Thankfully I made time this morning to indulge a few creative pursuits. Hopefully fresh ideas will emerge in my professional life either through innovation upcoming collaborations or new channels for the blog or book. I was listening to a podcast that featured Casey Neistat. He is a young entrepreneur and popular vlogger on youtube channels. He recently launched a novel social media platform (or is it a tool?) called Beme. Here is a sample of his videography. Powerful.
Now in consideration of the written word and nonfiction, there is this lovely. In the quick e-book world that I bridge, here is the most beautifully designed hardcover with a linen-wrapped spine with gold foil. No Amazon distribution here. This is a book written and designed the way books are meant to be. I am thankful that the author sent me an email announcing the publication.
