Alan Murphy I recently came across the Daily Pilot article "JWA tracking its planes for residents" from the June 28 edition and hoped to clarify some of the information that may have been misinterpreted. In Wednesday's "Forum," a resident from Newport Beach echoed her fears about our new technology for tracking flights traversing airspace over and around John Wayne Airport ("Internet flight guides seem a bit unsafe, unsound"). I must stress that the flight tracking software is completely safe and its main purpose it to aid the public in understanding how aviation, and specifically John Wayne, affects their daily lives.

Paul Clinton A survivor of the instant-millionaire dot-com era is relaunching itself locally after retreating from an office on the outskirts of Silicon Valley. Loominate, a company that provides streaming audio-video services, set up shop in October at a Superior Avenue office, which is about half the size of their previous space.

Scientists at UC Irvine are developing a way to create a modern version of the house call. Researchers at the university’s California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) are working on Telios, a software package that would allow doctors to monitor and consult with patients remotely. It “allows a physician to come into your home without actually coming into your home,” said co-principal investigator Mark Bachman. Telios, or Telepresence Interactive Operating System, relies on Web-based technology that many patients are familiar with; it’s similar to the chat option in Facebook or how webcams are used in Skype.
