Neurosurgeons going paperless at convention

Philadelphia Inquirer, January 18, 2010
When 3,500 neurosurgeons meet in Philadelphia in May, organizers believe it will be the nation's first paperless scientific or medical convention. When they register at the American Association of Neurological Surgeons meeting, the doctors will be given iPod touches already loaded with everything they'll need, including the program (165 pages last year), summaries of research presented at the meeting, advertising, and information from exhibitors. Doctors will be able to use the iPods for messaging and for interacting with presenters during meetings.
