Monday, March 31, 2008 Hearts OrganizedWisdom

For those of you who care to follow progress of OrganizedWisdom, I did a fun interview last week with about the company. Read the full chat by clicking here.

They also published this review raving about our new RequestWisdom service. I love how they ended the post:

Bottom line: If you want a Wisdom Card for your medical condition, or for your friend or family member’s, OW will either have one or make one. And if you have a question about it, you can check in with your personal Health Expert.

Honestly, can Google do that?

If you've ever lost photos then you'll understand why SugarSync is needed...

A few years ago, I lost about 4 years worth of digital photos. It was a real drag to say the least.

Fortunately, I was able to recover about 30% of the images, but that was no solace.

As a result, I am constantly having to back up all of my photos from multiple devices, on to multiple DVDs, and store them in multiple locations. The whole process is a real drag too. But something I do at least quarterly to make sure I don't experience a data disaster again.

That's why I'm so happy to test this new data sync and back-up service I just read about in the New York Times called SugarSync.

I'll let you know how Sugar Sync works...but my parting advice is please, please take the time TODAY to back up your data. It's worth it.

How Aware Are You?

Ever wonder why communication is so challenging sometimes? Is your message is getting through? Think that 30 second spot is worth 2 million bucks?

Watch this video and think again. I first took this test a few weeks ago at a forum and was blown away. Out of 400 people in the room, only 2 people were perceptive enough to pass the test. And everyone thought those two were crazy before watching the video again.

Give it a try.

Whirlwind Few Weeks

My posting has been slow as it's been a whirlwind several weeks.

I just got back from the amazing Health 2.0 conference in San Diego. OrganizedWisdom was the only company to have been invited both times to speak at Health 2.0, which is amazing considering the great companies now helping shape the space. We launched our new service called LiveWisdom, which enables people to connect with a doctor to ask them questions for only $1.99 a minute.

Read what VentureBeat has to say about us today here.

We also helped launch the dCard over the past week. Here's the press release.

OrganizedWisdom continues to beat even our own expectations and is growing at a rapid clip now. We're now covering more than 10,000 of the most popular and important health searches! We have thousands of WisdomCards and our team of expert health guides are producing them at more than 100 a day now which is no easy feat.

We launched a new design that I am thrilled with. Check it out and let me know what you think. Be honest please!

Besides working around the clock, I've been traveling all over the place which has been fun but tiring. In the past 12 weeks or so I've been to Rio de Janeiro, San Jose/Jaco (Costa Rica), Los Angeles, San Diego, Cleveland, Dallas, Boston, Philadelphia, Amsterdam, and am now finally back in NYC. Phfew!

Besides getting food poisoning in Brasil and having to travel for my grandfather's funeral, I have had a great few weeks. And I'm looking forward to the next few now that day light savings is almost here.
