Support Mike and Brain Research

By - June 17, 2008

Earlier I posted about Mike Homer and his fight with CJD, a brain wasting disease. Yesterday the fight widened with the announcement of a YouTube channel in conjunction with UCSF, and more. Om has a nice writeup here. From it:

UCSF along with YouTube have launched a comprehensive Internet video channel dedicated to the improved understanding of incurable neurodegenerative brain diseases. The YouTube channel is part of an overall Internet campaign that will help UCSF’s researchers and clinicians reach out to a global audience.



It was inspired by the “Fight for Mike,” an initiative by Silicon Valley leaders to save the life of former Apple/Netscape marketing ace Mike Homer, who was diagnosed last spring with CJD and is being treated at UCSF. Since June 2007, the Fight for Mike has raised more than $7 million for CJD research at UCSF. Maybe you want to join hands and help
support the cause.

    A personal pet peeve of mine — is there any chance someone could deploy something like this pseudo-code when displaying the word “comment” on your site? :

    string = “COMMENT”;
    if (numberOfComments != 1) {
    string += “S”;
    }
    print string;

    This would stop the “1 COMMENTS” display that you’ve currently got.

    Otherwise, thanks for the great coverage.
