Day 2 at the Rehab International World Congress

Another great day at the Rehab International World Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Today was my turn to present, taking about Therap’s approach and the impact it has on people and their circle of support.

The format was a new one for me.  Four presentations were grouped together with each presenter talking and then a time for questions.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I actually really liked it.  I think it helped have more people in the session for all of us and the other presentations were very cool.

  • Making gait analysis quicker, cheaper, and more affordable.
  • Parent and self advocacy in South Korea
  • Crowd sourcing wheelchair design and manufacture: I love the description of a wheelchair as “wearable tech”. Check out
  • Yours […]

Tuesday at the Rehab International World Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland

This week I am attending the Rehab International World Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland (I might also stop in to see some friends, family, and the famous Heart of Midlothian!).

The conference got off to a very illustrious start with speeches from Princess Anne and Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon among others.

I’m already meeting a bunch of fascinating folks from all over the world and looking forward to presenting on what Therap does tomorrow.

See you in Edingburgh!

Edinburgh Castle


This should be my view tomorrow morning (assuming of course I forget to get off the bus at my parent’s house).

I will be in Scotland for the next week so I may be slightly less available than normal.

If you need me, email is probably best, or try the office or live help.

Just keep heading east…


Original Picture is Unavailable

After a great week in California, I’m temporarily in New Jersey (enough time to watch a couple of games from Euro 2012) and then it is on to Newcastle, England where I will be attending the Designing Interactive Systems Conference.

Of course a rather fortunate side effect of this is that I will be able to stop in and see my familty in Edinburgh and actually bring my parents back with me in time for Calum’s high school graduation along with Siraya’s adoption and baptism.  It’s going to be quite a fortnight or so!

As always, probably the best way to get ahold of me is through email.

Happy Burns' Night

Image of Robert Burns


To celebrate the birth of Robert Burns, Scotland’s bard, here’s a bit of poetry.

If you’ve never been to a Burns Supper, get it on your bucket list


Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great Chieftan o’ the Puddin-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang’s my arm

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
You pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o’need
While thro’ your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead

His knife see Rustic-labour dight,
An’ cut you up wi’ ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails […]

Oh what fun it is to beat the Hibs on (the day after) New Year's Day

Picture of Football Game

We have played in South Morroco, we have played in the USA

But the greatest game in history in the game on (the day after) New Year’s Day

New Year’s Day is the tradional day for football (soccer) derbies (rivalry games) in Scotland.  For some reason (I would suspect alcohol consumption) they rarely seem to happen actually on New Year’s Day these days, but this one was pretty close.

It’s been a tough couple of months for my beloved Hearts, with off the field stories about financial problems and unpaid wages making all the headlines along with some pretty poor results.  The results have picked up over the […]

Homeward Bound

Edinburgh, Scotland


I am on my way back to Edinburgh, Scotland where I will be for the next week, spending some time with my parents.

I’ll be available by just about all of the usual means, but if you can’t find me and need something urgently, be sure to call the office or jump on Live Help.

Shades of 2006 as Scotland look to the future

As we all get excited about the upcoming World Cup in South Africa, Scotland (who failed to qualify yet again) are starting the rebuilding process.

Tonight was new manager (and former Hearts player and manager) Craig Levein’s first game in charge and it went very well as we beat the Czech Republic 1-0 at Hampden.

What was quite remarkable was the number of players on the pitch from Hearts cup winning team of 2006:

For Scotland:

  • Craig Gordon (now with Sunderland)
  • Lee Wallace (still with Hearts)
  • Andy Webster (now with Dundee United)
  • Paul Hartley (now with Bristol City, but check out this photo of him on Wikipedia!)
  • Christophe Berra (now with Wolverhampton Wanderers)

And for the Czech Republic

Just goes to […]
