A bit more about our speaker:

Bruce leads a dull life, going from his office to the operating theatre and back again.  He does not go outside, except in the summertime.  He makes a significant charitable donation each year, to the local golf club, but does not take any chances on wearing the course out.  He does manage the occasional ski trip but always likes to have wifi so he can continue to monitor the MRI scanner.  He views a day without an hour or so staring at black and white pictures, a day wasted.
