My 24 Hours Unplugged: What We Can Learn About Life Science Business Planning

There have been reports that have been coming out lately showing that multitasking, an activity often exacerbated by the internet and social media, can be less effective, shorten our attention spans and even affect our relationships. Recently I went to some conference presentations and noticed a difference in my attention span–that nagging feeling that I’m missing information, having to tell myself “you can only check your phone once every 15 minutes.” I decided to go cold turkey for a day–no internet, period. Granted, it was a Sunday, but I gained some insights relevant to life science business planning that i’d like to share. I started at 7 p.m. Saturday, announcing to the Twitterverse that they should expect to not hear from me for 24 hours. Shortly after I signed off I realized I promised to make a dish the next morning for which I did not have the recipe…get out the old cookbooks! Lesson one was that I rediscovered the usefulness of browsing. I have about 40 cookbooks, several I have forgotten about, and I reacquainted myself with some of them and some recipes I would never have found via a Google search. When we rely on what we think […]

Beta Launch of Engaging Epigenetics Experts at American Association for Cancer Research Meeting #aacr

We’re very excited about our recent beta launch of a new web 2.0 resource for life science researchers at the American Association for Cancer Research Meeting (AACR) this week. Engaging Epigenetics Experts (E3) is being developed with New England Biolabs (NEB), leading provider of molecular biology solutions. We built the application using our STIR Social Media™ system to ensure that it will meet the needs of life science researchers and thus be adopted by them and grow. Epigenetics is a fast-growing, interdisciplinary field studying the way environment changes genetic information, and we created a Social Media Charter™ for NEB, working closely with them and benefiting from their knowledge of their customers and the science. In meeting the needs of epigenetics researchers, NEB will better be better positioned in this competitive market, and they’ll also gain from getting product development feedback from the researchers. We applaud NEB for having a long-range view of these new applications, and know that they will pay off soon. Our Social Media for Life Science and Biotechnology Workshop April 14th will describe the STIR Social Media system in detail, helping you to learn how to leverage these new tools effectively. To share this post easily cut […]
