Be Patient with Patient Technology Updates

Last week my aunt called me up and told me that her “fancy iPhone gizmo” was telling her that she needed to update her phone. As I am her favorite niece (well, really her only niece), and I know sooo much about all these techie things, maybe if I wasn’t too busy, could I help her do it? She asked me to walk her through the update process (step-by-step directions are what she needs), because she really wanted to be able to use the new flashlight function that they showed on the news.

AfterDeployment: Five Years and Still Going Strong

We’re pretty excited about the fifth anniversary of one of T2’s flagship products, the website AfterDeployment (AD). For me, the best thing about AD is that I can always depend on the site to provide current and evidence-based content for almost any behavioral health issue.

In addition to constant review to make sure the content is fresh and accurate, we’ve also made some major additions and improvements over the last five years, including:

I Can Write This Blog Post in 30 Minutes

Well 30 minutes was my initial estimate. As an iOS app developer at T2, I reserve the right to refine that estimate as I continue writing and it becomes apparent that my estimate is diverging from reality. And I think that I speak for software developers everywhere when I say that developing estimates is the highlight of my job. If we didn’t spend significant time estimating, all of our time and effort would be squandered on actually producing apps and software.

Attack of the Selfies

The other day I was sitting in my physician’s waiting room, when I noticed a young lady taking pictures of herself (“selfies"). My doctor’s waiting room is for the entire clinic, including the behavioral health services. Since the topic of stigma is so often broached in the psychological field, I got to thinking about how I would feel if I were a patient here to see a therapist, instead of my general doctor. What if I didn’t want anyone to know that I was here? What if I accidentally ended up in the selfies she posts on Facebook or Twitter? What if someone recognized me?
