Getting to Know Brian
WIHT: How did you become involved in so many things?
Brian: Do you mean, "Can't you make your mind up?!" The thought occurs to me from time to time too. But really, I see them as all part of the same thing. It's all about communication and the power of stories.
WIHT: How does medicine fit into the power of stories?
Brian: Perhaps an example will help. When I was in the fifth grade, I came up with the idea for Health Stories for Kids. One of the stories is called "Body Wars," which personifies the immune system and how the body fights disease.
WIHT: How else does that work?
Brian: Well, I'm very interested in child psychiatry. Obviously, stories are important to that. And in a general sense, stories are important for people to understand their diseases.
WIHT: Star Trek or Star Wars?
Brian: Star Wars.
WIHT: Windows, Mac, GNU/Linux?
