Good luck with everything Brand, I hope the distinction you're making works for you.

Believe it or not, people know how to find me without your website enabling spambots for my government email address.

George, Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not interested in submitting for the following reasons:

As I said in your session last week, we speak a different language, to me it is not about what one does to the data (technology), but what one does with the data (science, statistics, and visualizations):

Last week at the Health Datapalooza, Jonathan Gluck suggested I help Dr. Merkin with more prizes:

Since you've already 'done' six of the seven challenges announced to evolve and mature HHS health data and the healthdata.gov platform components, be sure to submit your solutions via challenge.gov so that they will get reviewed.

I would really appreciate if your web site did not include my email address, as this enables receiving spam at work. I'll ask you to please remove that.

Todd Park: I found at HHS that the best way to get a project done in government is find the people that had that idea years ago and recruit them to work for you.
