The self-congratulatory tone of this video is offensive and disgusting.There is a healthcare crisis and the points addressed in this video are largely irrelevant and akin to dusting the tables while the house burns down. I’m sure this comment, along with any and all criticism, will be deleted so enjoy it while you can.

Very nice. Inspiring, actually. I’m almost done studying the PCAST report, yellow highlighter, red pen, and sticky notes everywhere. I work for one of the Regional Extension Centers, and will exhort everyone on my organization to watch this and to read the report (I will make the same exhortation on the HITRC). It really goes cogently to “why are we doing all of this?” I will also cite/embed this on my independent REC blog. Google “REC blog”. I’m the first search result, above the fold.
