Another Awesome, Uplifting Story About Ultra High-Tech Cure For Some Types Of Blindness — You HAVE To Read.
This is so inspiring, awesome and uplifting. Just great that talented engineers are doing so much to help the blind gain some sight. Way back, when I first joined IBM, in the mid-1970s, I tried to do my bit. But, that was nothing. Nothing like this. So, glad. So, happy. Being in total darkness cannot be much fun though these brave people tough it out. Just seeing some light and some shape, to begin with, has to be such a relief. Literally, light at the end of the tunnel.
Second great story in two months. We must be making strides. I am delighted. Savor. Share. Contemplate.

Yes, I like helium balloons. I didn’t have them growing up in Ceylon, but as a father to four kids, as of 1989, I know that I have bought too many. I even used to get the helium canisters for the home. Then c. 2012 I heard about the helium shortage. I started to become responsible about wasting helium. Since 2012 I have really cut back on buying helium balloons. Yes, I know kids like them and they cheer up the sick. So, it is a compromise.
Yes, I have seen too many helium balloons go ‘bye-bye’. I even watched a 12-year, rather spoilt boy, intentionally let go of a $99 motor-driven, helium filled shark. We tried to chase that down by car!
Yes, I know some set them loose intentionally — to be symbolic of freedom. This was at Concord Hospital, today. So, it could have been either, accidental or intentional. Either way it could end up two-weeks later in a field, woods or a lake. Animals will peck at it. Not good. Sad.
But, in the scheme of things we have bigger problems.
But, PLEASE try not to buy too many helium balloons.
Tell Realtors to cut it out.
Operational ‘Ultratec’ TTY (Terminal) With ‘Acoustic Coupler’ At ‘Concord Hospital’, N.H. — September 18, 2019.

Talk about a blast from the past. I knew what it was. I remembered them from way back. Had to check to see the exact timeframe. 1985. Same year I arrived in the U.S. for ‘this stint’ — having previously come for one year in 1967.
This TTY terminal probably still works if you knew the phone number of a computer that will support TTY communication.
34-years old — or in that timeframe.
Wanted to share with you all.
