Back From the Internet Doldrums

Lord-willing, my readers can expect a bit more frequent posting from me, now that it doesn’t take three hours to write a very small post. I had been afflicted with a very poky internet connection that sometimes took several minutes to load a single page. I was reduced to writing my post in a word-processor, and then copying and pasting it, so as to initiate as few distinct pages as possible. Now, however, we have a blazing fast internet connection at the church, and I am now out of the internet doldrums.

    This is what can happen when you move out of the United States! (Kidding, kidding…)

    Lane’s technological challenge: “high speed” internet access, that is usable internet access is a sobering reminder to us.

    There are many, many areas of the States that do not enjoy easy easy access to the web. It isn’t even a matter of being able to afford it. It’s quite simple: there are rural and semi-rural, and less densely populated areas that are not well-served at all with internet access.

    This is especially poignant for the push of electronic health records/patient portals, etc coming out of the Recovery Act. All the government plans & incentives for healthcare assume everyone has meaningful internet access. It’s just not so. Those of use with the access should be grateful, and more responsible in its use or application.

    My wife and I are both in healthcare information services (although the wife started as an RN, has an MSN and is a Pediatric NP, yes, I’m bragging). The Wife works out of town, and is a few hours from Lane in SC. It is a different world from either coast and its big city/suburb sprawl.

    That said, let’s review some books!
