The IAM Learning Community has reposted my essay, Remembering How to Play. I hope you’ll head over there and check it out.
This essay started life as a collection of notes I made on every Stephen King book a few years back, when I was rereading them all. Then it morphed into an answer to a question on Quora. Which I then reposted on my books blog. Read: Common Themes in the Works of Stephen King on Books Worth Reading.
My hastily dashed off response to Time magazine’s breastfeeding cover on Quora this morning was reprinted on the Huffington Post:
Here is a piece I co-wrote about the iHRIS Open Source HRIS software project I’ve been working on. It provides some history and context of the project, and it looks ahead to next developments. Read: iHRIS: Where Are We Now? | www.ihris.org.
I have been working lately, and here’s what I’ve been working on. I’ve been revamping the website for iHRIS: Free and Open Health Workforce Information Software. This is a project to create open source human resources information systems that governments in the developing world can use to manage their health workers. We just launched the new website along with a major new release of the software. Check it out. There’s a blog, a Twitter feed, all the goodies.
IAM Community has republished an older essay of mine that I still like a lot. It’s called Get A Real Job. Go check it out!
I’ve answered a couple of questions about being a stay-at-home mom on Quora recently, and I quite like the answers. I invite you to go read them along with all the other great answers to these two questions:
I was pleased to contribute three of my book reviews to SF Mistressworks, a blog devoted to reviewing science fiction written by women and published during the 20th century.
- A Gift Upon the Shore by M.K. Wren
- The Eye of the Heron by Ursula K. Le Guin
- Where Late the Sweet Birds Sing by Kate Wilhelm
I appreciate what SF Mistressworks is doing to highlight science fiction written by women, a strong interest of mine. Please check out the rest of the reviews while you’re there.
Here’s a list I originally wrote for Flashlight-Worthy Book Recommendations that was recently revamped and republished on the Huffington Post: 11 Zombie-Free Flashlight Worthy Novels to Help You Survive the Apocalypse (PHOTOS). Woohoo! Big time!
My former employer, IntraHealth International, recently held a multimedia expo and day-long event called “It Takes a Workforce: Improving Global Health Services” to mark the end of their five-year project to strengthen the global health workforce, the Capacity Project.
The Capacity Project was also a major part of my life over the last five years, as I was a member of the human resources information systems strengthening team, which developed open source HRIS software and deployed it in several countries in Africa. According to USAID, the funder of the Capacity Project, HRIS strengthening was one of the significant contributions of the project, laying the groundwork for future health systems strengthening.
According to all reports, the event and expo was very successful. Please go read more about it on the HRIS Strengthening team’s blog.
