It will not come as a shock that tech conventions have had a lull the past year. ("Had a lull" shall be used herein as meaning "fallen off the face of the earth.") However, the Pepcom group (whose events I've attended at the Consumer Electronics Show for years) has periodically been holding "virtual exhibitions" online that have been pretty well organized. And they just did one for health-related products, which they called WellNow.
Healthcare isn’t an area that I tend to cover much in my Writers Workbench column that I do for the Writers Guild of America website. However, over the years I’ve periodically found some interesting health products that stood out in some way. So, I figured that this would be a good way to attend a tech event during a time of paucity, and write a column on it. The result isn't necessarily a collection of products most people will rush out to get, but there a few products in the health field that were at at least interesting for their inventiveness. Or just perhaps odd. And I think -- or at least hope -- would be interesting to read about.
As I noted in the past, putting a column together takes a bit of coding, so since the folks at the Writers Guild kindly do it for me, I figure why go through it all again for these pages. And so instead I've linked to it here.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
