Computers are here to stay. The application of electronic communication to health care is changing the practice of the health care provider, but electronic involvement can be fun. Recently a colleague was working on a trivia quiz and needed the birth date of Sherlock Holmes. Finding an answer took less than three minutes on the Internet. (By the way, it's January 9, 1854, in case the question ever arises.) The use of computers at home and in health care is intriguing.
