AARP and HeathCare reform

disclaimer: I consult (Enterprise Applications - Software) at AARP. Although, the views expressed here are solely mine and do not represent AARP.

I am following the whole health care *issue* moving fluidly from a thought, to a presidential campaign material, to a perceived *can-wait*, to a must-do now, to a political opportunity, and now to a furiously moving going-hot town halls and debates. I can't tell if this effects me much. I don't know completely if the reform is needed. But sure I do realize there is more than just money and politics involved. And People, Mostly, are driven by motives and myths than reality. Here is AARP's stand, clip from O' Reilly factor.



Like DividedWeFail.org, AARP's new commitment to this reform is expressed in a new site. HealthActionNow.org. It tries to address some clarity on myths that are going around.

Side note: Creative or what?

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
