Hi Mark,

I watched most of your demo earlier - tough it would have been good  
to know up front that it would be 15 minutes.  I ran out of time and  
didn't get to the end.  I liked it though.  It's clear that we all  
need to do some thinking on what and how so that we can map it out.   
I recently went to a meeting at the MASS Technology Leadership  
Council - Life Sciences. There were several demos there that were all  
good, but the one the audience reacted to the most was by Rishi Sikka  
Boston U's Dept of Emergency Medicine.  The product was Curbside.MD  
and the company Praxeon.  Here's the link to the website, thought I  
didn't see a demo there.  What made the demo compelling was that  
everyone could relate to it, i.e. things were expressed in terms that  
were not a far reach for the audience.   On our recent telecon's and  
even in the email thread, a lot of us are having difficulty  
visualizing what it is we want do demo.  So, let's continue the  
discussions ......

Here's a link to some *non-science* demo tips:  http://www.instant- 

Have a good weekend!
