Making art

Seth Godin has an interesting blog that though not strictly dental or implant related offers many insights and smarts on marketing oneself and one business in the internet age ! I thought this post this morning was particularly appropriate.

Making art: "

My definition of art contains three elements:

  1. Art is made by a human being.

  2. Art is created to have an impact, to change someone else.

  3. Art is a gift. You can sell the souvenir, the canvas, the recording... but the idea itself is free, and the generosity is a critical part of making art.

By my definition, most art has nothing to do with oil paint or marble. Art is what we're doing when we do our best work.

A Brilliant Light !

The last few weeks of the year gone by were very busy and hectic. With lectures and courses in Ahmedabad ,Kolkatta and at our training centre in Mumbai and a quick family vacation in South India thrown in in between, I had no time to post to Implant Sutra.
First "A Very Happy New Year filled with Successful Implants" to all our readers.
My new years gift to myself was a brilliant headlight from Medled sold by Alvelogro. The actual details of the light itself are here but basically it is a brilliant white light that fits snugly on the head, is very light and lasts atleast 4 hours. It is so bright that I don't need to set it at more than half the intensity.
This is a wonderful light specially when working under magnification (when the chair light is generally inadequate). At US$700+ it is a bit steep but worth every rupee.
