Video of Clintara “Best Case Study” At Life Sciences Event

Sunday, July 31st, 2011


A recent post described my participation in the Life Sciences Technology Insight event at the Harvard Club in Boston Massachusetts.  As Clintara‘s Director of Technology I gave a presentation (along with a colleague from Astra Zeneca) describing Clintara’s services and new technologies (including utilization of a smartpen and our new iPad prototype).

We were pleased to win the audience’s award for Best Innovative Case Study Presentation.  (Above picture shows me receiving the award from Bill Sell, Vice President & General Manager of CrossTech Forums.) As promised, I have posted the video from that event in this post.

Below is a brief overview/preview (5 minutes) of the presentation.  (Note: The entire presentation can be viewed by scrolling further down this page.)

The entire presentation (40 minutes) can be viewed below.

One of the things which I enjoy is the annual July 4th fireworks display in Boston.  Below are some interesting links and video which show the behind the scenes activities, and some related stories/info.

  • The rhythm of the rockets – A master pyrotechnician synchronizes the dazzling fireworks with music for Boston’s 2011 Fourth of July celebration on the Esplanade.
  • The official website for the Boston Fourth of July celebration on the Esplanade
  • 2009 WSJ article re: NYC’s fireworks behind the scenes activities
  • A Bulgarian blogger experiences the 2010 Boston fireworks as the best in the world
  • An interesting July 4th story / parable (and more links)
  • Below video shows an interesting 2009 tour of the Boston fireworks barge.  (If the video is not visible, refresh your browser view, and/or click here. Adobe Flash is required to play the video.  Can also try this link, which requires free registration.)
