I decided to do the Web 2.0 thing and announce in this order: Twitter (see it here and below), then blog (this post), then e-mail.
Those who have invested in the ambient awareness of my activities will find out first, and the new length of any announcement is 140 characters or less.
You can read more about the Permanente Federation here and here. I will be doing this 50 % time and will be based in Washington, DC. I will continue to blog and twitter my experiences working with this leading edge organization, and I’m looking forward to serving both the members and communities that Kaiser Permanente supports.
