Interview with Dr. Mark Toups

"And what I wanted to instill was curiosity. It was okay not to know. It was okay to be bewildered and to wonder, and to be curious and whatever we were curious about, we would come back and see could we find information about it?"

Mark sent me a paper he authored in 1985 about the need for microcomputers to assist with information retrieval (written on an original Mac). As an internal medicine doctor he saw where the industry was heading over 35 years ago. He is probably the most humble, wise, and talented CMIO to never have a CMIO title.
