  132.   <description>The blessing of IBM transformed the PC from a hobbyist’s machine into a business machine.

  146.   <description>Many Great Lakes cities have dwindling populations, high unemployment and a rust belt perception.  One of the ways that cities have been able to increase population, job creation and vitality is by attracting immigrants.  But this is a very competitive arena that requires a sense of urgency. </description>

  209.   <description>There seems to be a lack of true programmers in the current Internet-centric scene.  You need real back end developers besides the pretty front end stuff.   And I don’t care if you use the LAMP stack or Microsoft’s platform or what – but you’ve got to be able to program, not just rearrange components from a library or tweak prewritten templates in order to be a true web developer. http://www.greatlakesgeek.com/glg/one-minute.htm</description>

  430.   <description>So how do you come up with a list of the Top Tech Titans in Town? That's what I did for my March column in Inside Business magazine. The January issue listed the most powerful Business people in town and I thought Tech needed its own list. Hear the rationale behind some of the selections and the categories.  By popular request I also publish the Top Ten in the the popular vote. And I include the Up and Comers category which got cut from the magazine version.</description>

  502.   <link>http://www.greatlakesgeek.com/other/events/super-dimension-100609.htm</link>
  503.   <description>Imagine you go to the Doctor and have a routine CT scan.  Thousands of CT scans are done every day.  What if the scan accidentally finds spots on your lungs?  You don’t have any symptoms so the Doctor tells you to go home and forget about it for 3-6 months. Yeah right.  You go home and worry that you have lung cancer.  In 3-6 months you go back, have another scan and the Doctor checks to see if the spots changed or grew.  I saw the inReachTM System from superDimension at the Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit this week.  It lets doctors get to those spots without surgery so that the patient can have peace of mind and/or treatment started earlier.

  643.   <link>http://www.greatlakesgeek.com/podaudio/audio/steve-forbes.mp3</link>
  644.   <description>No matter what your politics, the secret ballot should be held sacrosanct in the US.  The secret ballot lets people vote how they want without fear of intimidation or retribution.  It’s the American way.  As Steve Forbes says in this podcast, removing secret ballots is “more of a Soviet style way of doing a union election.”
  645. &lt;br>In this snippet from a conference call, Steve Forbes focuses on the two most glaring problems with the Employee Free Choice Act which he calls the Employee Forced Choice Act, the removal of the secret ballot and the binding arbitration clause.</description>

  835.   <description>You may have heard terms like FAT, FAT32, NTFS, cluster size and partition and have glossed over them.  File Allocation Tables sound like a “too-techie-let’s-ignore-it” component of computing but they are the foundation of your hard drives functionality.  Greg Hayes of Raxco Software was a Microsoft MVP for Windows File Systems for 5 Years.  He knows this stuff so that you can get by with glossing over it.  If you want to learn more, take a listen to Greg in this podcast.  It’s a little more techie than some but worth the time.</description>

It’s the basis for countless business books and seminars but it’s much easier to read about then to put into practice.
