Pause for station identification

As I am sort of feeling my brain starting to reactivate my writing muscles, I thought now would be a good time for a station identification. No need to panic. I’ve done this before. This is my 10th pause for station identification on this site since the first one in March 2005 (and #10 seemed like an interesting […]

Pause for station identification

Time for my periodic pause for station identification. Me Hello, folks. My name is Charlie Schick. I am Director, Business Development, Healthcare, at Atigeo. I just started at Atigeo (June 2014) and am excited to help them take their xPatterns Platform to the next level. My move to Atigeo is very much a “money where […]

At HealthFOO this weekend

I’m so excited to be at HealthFOO this weekend (it had been postponed from April). And I am extremely humbled by the folks who will be there. Of course, I’ll be there with an open mind to hoover all I can and collide it all in my wee head to see what interesting things come […]

Pause for station identification

Oh, seems like another good time for a pause for station identification. I do these periodically to let folks know what this (as of late, slow) blog is all about. Me Hello, folks. My name is Charlie Schick. I am a Director on the Big Data sales team at IBM. I am a sales consultant […]

Pause for station identification

I seem to be overdue for a station identification. And, all the more urgent, as I was recently mentioned in an article in the NYT (why, oh, why do I always miss these traffic spikes?). So, hello, all of you who still stick around here to read my ramblings. And, hello, to all of you […]

Thoughts on completing NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo, as you probably know, stands for National November Writing Month. It’s a crazy-ass month-long 50,000-word writing challenge. I’ve known about it for a long time and each year I make a less-wimpy attempt to gear up for it. But for some reason, this year clicked, and I did it. My experience I was slow […]

A “shucks” followed by a “yay” and the some: SXSW 2012 panels announced

No, my panel on DIYbio was not chosen. That’s the “shucks”. The great news is that Christina Agapakis’ panel “Designing Living Things” did get selected! She’s got a great crowd on her panel: Patrick Boyle, Daisy Ginsberg, Jason Kelly, and Sri Kosuri. A veritable who’s-who in synthetic bio and synthetic aesthetics. It’s a great follow-on […]

Hopefully resuming service

Just wanted to say that Irene did a number on us. Today, Friday, our power was finally restored. We lost power and running water on Sunday – that’s about 120 hours living the medieval life, sort of – candles, pitchers of water by the sink, eating only what we can grill (ok, so we were […]

“DIYbio: hackspaces, open source & f*ck yeah ethics” a proposed SXSW session

I’ve done it. I’ve submitted a proposal to SXSW. Alas, I was only able to submit one, despite all the ideas I had (anyone going to submit others, want to coordinate?) I can edit this until 05 August, then I guess the voting begins. Next step for me is to determine if it’s a panel […]
