    I did a site interview for a new job yesterday and now it's in the hands of the hiring gods. Put some good vibes out there, please.

    My company did something monumentally stupid today, and I have this growing sense that my group/role is about to be reassigned... to people that absolutely don't know how this system works, but are experts in it nonetheless.

    I hope I get a second interview with the other company.

    That's actually pretty funny.

    I think it's a fascinating issue, on so many fronts. For instance, recruiting. Are players going to pick schools based upon whether they are a "union shop" or not? Are the unions going to try to get under one umbrella basketball players from different conferences, even different divisions. It's not exactly like the MLB or NFL player's associations.

    Does this new ruling extend down into the high school ranks? How about mite hockey? Might be some pretty interesting child labor issues if it goes anywhere lower than college, I'd think.

    I've been sort of hoping we'd hear from unofan on the NLRB decision involving the Dartmouth basketball team. I think he's a Dartmouth guy, isn't he? Plus, I think he says he deals with employment law. News reports suggest it says that the player's are employees of Dartmouth and may now unionize. I haven't yet searched the internet for a copy of the decision, so I have no idea what it says, but it seems like it might open a whole lot of cans of worms.

    Obviously professional athletes have unionized for years now.

    First day yesterday working at my new job.

    The power went out and two adults tried to elope (leave the area/get beyond the attention of staff).

    Ahh, right on. So just to be clear, every Epic instance is completely separate from each other. We host our own server farms entirely. So MGB's Patient Gateway could go down while Lahey's or UMASS's is still up. They're connected, but not on the same set of servers.

    Yesterday: "Technical Dress Rehearsal" at a newly opening practice should have taken 2 hours, but due to abysmal planning on the ops side, it took us all day.

    Today: portals are slow as dog****, and just as we get into fixing them, someone forgot to update a cert and e-prescribing controlled substances stops working. In the process of looking into that they note that the main controlling certificate for the entire EHR is set to expire later today.

    Meanwhile, I'm told to run a mini project by Wednesday to message about 5000 patients about a new payment plan system, using tools that are actively off (and thus, need to be turned on), and a method that our non-Epic-knowledgeable upper management prefers but isn't a good process at all if you know Epic at any depth.





    Thursday's interview better go well.

    He was also a lot more racist than is ever taught in our schools (though not out of line with other whites at the time). Still, he's an interesting study in how a politician's views might evolve over the years, assuming they have the braincells. He went from containment of slavery and a full-throated endorsement of early eugenics and race separatism in 1858, to abolition in 1863, to (paraphrasing) "we should enfranchise the educated and veteran blacks" in April 1865 about 3 days before Booth shot him.

    Today we'd cynically call him a triangulating Clintonista, sticking his finger in the air to test the political winds before making a statement.
    He was way ahead of his time relative to the average educated man, let alone the average yokel. He acknowledged blacks as human beings. His racism was paternalistic, believing that people subjected to slavery would be unable to function as equals in civil society the way someone raised in low gravity would be unable to compete athletically because their muscles were atrophied. If he believed race was a thing and that African-descendants would do better in Africa that was some misplaced Darwinism of the Herbert Spencer variety. He was no doubt guilty of a well-meaning albeit biased attempt to work for human flourishing regardless of race. God knows what he said about the Irish.
