Thanks for publishing my photo @PopSugar, in your post, linked below.

Since it’s my turn to comment:

I’ll say that the @VirginAmerica story showed that there is still plenty of room for innovation in our legacy industries (*cough* health care). – Look what happened for, oh, 70 years – airline passengers were told that staring at a white wall for 5 hours was the air travel “experience.”

What are patients in health care today being told about their experience, and how much of it is based on what’s possible versus what someone, a long time ago, in a monoculture somewhere, decided is the way things should be.

To summarize, I love the 21st Century, don’t you? 🙂

There’s been lots of talk surrounding Virgin America since Alaska Airlines acquired the company for $2.6 billion. The cherished airline will be facing many changes come January 2017, but in the meantime we will continue to enjoy Virgin America as it is.
