Finding community online and in person

From Business Today:

Users of prosthetic limbs have found a sense of community online. When Sue Muscarella of Kenmore was  ILIMBfitted with her new i-LIMB hand, an advanced prosthesis that uses sensors and a tiny computer for tremendous control, she learned how to use it by watching videos posted by a woman using the same device on the other side of the country.

That woman, Carrie Davis of Spokane, Wash., posted the videos as part of a peer-to-peer network she created with her Web site.

 

Canisius Canisius College will host its biennial Women's Leadership Conference June 14. Keynote speaker Janet Hanson is founder and CEO of 85 Broads, a global network of women, and will talk about the importance of investing in females. Teresa Amabile will talk about what makes people happy and productive at work. Amabile is a director of research at Harvard Business School. The conference will also feature a panel of Canisius alumni, including Amy E. Hoffman of Rooster Hill vineyards, Cindy Odom of the Girl Scouts of Western New York and Marya Propis of Risk Specialist Companies insurance agency.
