How amazing.

I’d be more than happy to share enthusiastically/lovingly/factually about me Newts. As something like a barefoot circuit doc in Mao’s China, I didn’t even have a secretary except me Newt, plus I used Palmedic to have patient data with me anytime, anywhere, had a sort of holster so I didn’t even need a bulky laptop case. — Very handy since I needed to bring medical equipment and lots of patient charts with me. (They filled out health questionnaires, lab results were on paper, etc.)

Plus no other platform at the time was so reliable, Newt never lost any of my data.

And with all the great utilities, especially SBM Utilities apps, I didn’t need even one IT assistant at all — that I couldn’t afford anyway. Yeah, there were learning curves, but I could do it all myself online, especially via NewtonTalk. Developers were fabulously, promptly responsive.

Yep, Newt was a CorpoRape America disrupter, had to go.

It would be a personal passion project, but I think I would only embark on it if I could get a reasonable number of people involved and ready to talk.
