It was a normal day. I beat my alarm clock to the punch, waking up 10
minutes before 6, literally negotiating my way out of a dream: a back-and-forth
arbitration with a business partner to strike a deal that would make us both
feel brilliant. Under the shower, scrubbing: If he tries to discount our software
fee by $500 per hospital, I'll insist on a minimum purchase of four clinical
conditions. He'll want a rebate off development costs if we eventually go
nonexclusive. Predictable. Brushing my teeth vigorously: I just can't be sure
of his moves.
