Wearable/portable brain scanner - put on my XMAS list

Thanks to Positive Technology Journal for the FYI post re: the trial development of a portable brain scanner that would allow people to keep tabs on their mental activity throughout the day. I'm not sure I want to know what my brain is doing all day long....but....heck could fun and may have potential in the growing brain fitness movement.

Notice to family/friends......put this on my XMAS wish list

Bloggin lite again--on the road again

Regular readers will have noted the continued dip in my posting the past few weeks. I was in DC for a trip a few weeks ago, spent last week preparing for a week long work session in Chicago, and have been in Chicago working since this Monday...and will be here till Friday.

I simply can't find much time to blog. I promise to slowly get back up to speed next week. Enjoy your time away from reading my postings....although I might do some quick FYI posts during some parts of my working meetings where I'm not actively involved in the discussions.

I shall return.
