A Father, a Dying Son, and the Quest to Make the Most Profound Videogame Ever | WIRED

Fri, 01/08/2016 - 10:04 -- rprice

You know you will have to play this game at some point. You will have to confront all of these moments, and many more. But not yet. Instead, you find the bespectacled man wearing a narrow-brimmed straw fedora and a close-cut red beard. This is Ryan Green. Hold out your hand and share a sad smile, a silent acknowledgment of what you both know—what Green himself didn’t know when he started working on That Dragon, Cancer, what he didn’t know the first time he brought it here to PAX. You know how the game ends. You know that Joel dies.

Google introduces smart contact lens project to measure glucose levels | Ars Technica

Sun, 01/19/2014 - 14:51 -- rprice

If you're wondering how power works, one of Praviz's previous projects was a contact lens with a working LED. Power for that was described as being "powered remotely using a 5-millimeter-long antenna printed on the lens to receive gigahertz-range radio-frequency energy from a transmitter placed ten centimetres from the eye." The copper circle around the edge of this lens is most likely an inductive charging coil, so actual use of this will probably require some kind of face-mounted charging antenna.

New Healthcare.gov is Open, CMS-Free | Development Seed

Wed, 03/13/2013 - 11:07 -- rprice

The code for the website will be open in two important ways. First, Bryan pledged, “everything we do will be published on GitHub,” meaning the entire code-base will be available for reuse. This is incredibly valuable because some states will set up their own state-based health insurance marketplaces. They can easily check out and build upon the work being done at the federal level.

ZocDoc CEO Cyrus Massoumi said three specialties have enough doctors to launch: primary care, OB-GYN and dermatology
