Medical Bloggers Survey Resume

It has been ten days since our “Examining the Medical Blogosphere: An Online Survey of Medical Bloggers” article was published in Journal of Medical Internet Research. During this period we have received numerous supportive e-mails from various bloggers and researchers. Also, many bloggers have written about our research, posted our abstract or slideshow presentation on their blogs. Interestingly, a lot of these post were written in languages other than English. There are posts out there about our research written in Italian, German, French, Russian, Spanish and Danish. All of these webpages were archived and are accessible at my Iterasi page.

We, the authors of the article, would like to thank everyone who wrote to us or wrote about or research on their website. Furthermore, we would like to announce that very soon we will be publishing the results of our follow-up medical bloggers survey, which will be available on this blog.

Blogging from my iPhone

I’m sitting on my balcony, sun is shining, Miles Davis playing on my stereo, cold drink in one hand, iPhone in the other, writing this post.
Ever since Apple launched it’s App Store I’ve been testing numerous third party apps on my iPhone. So far this one from Word Press, which I’m using to write this post, is one of my favorites.
I can manage my old posts, write new ones, assign them to categories, tag them, everything I normally do on my computer. All in a nice and intuitive interface. I can even post photos, take a look….

If you are using some other blogging software rather then Word Press, do not despair. Just visit the App Store, there is a great chance iPhone app for you blog engine already exists.

To Blog or Practice Medicine

I been working 48 hours shifts in the Emergency Department this whole month and I am starting to feel just a little bit tired. I completely neglected my blog cause I just could not find the time and energy to post new stories.

Well it seams Dr. Arnold Kim has resolved his dilemma regarding medicine and blogging. This month he stopped practicing medicine and started blogging full time on his highly popular technology blog called MacRumors.

Twitter homepage parody

I am sure you know about Twitter, but let me shortly describe it for those who never heard about it. Twitter is basically a micro-blogging service that allows users to send “tweets” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to Twitter website, via SMS, instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific or Facebook. Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and instantly delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, email or through an application.

This is all great, but there is a tendency for Twitter to become overwhelming and annoying, if misused. I’m telling you, I have nightmares of drowning in millions of tweets sent by my friends. Also, I am afraid of becoming obsessive and start writing about each and every thing happening in my life…I just eat a banana….I just updated my Twitter page…..I just typed a letter A and a dot. You know, something like James Joyce on Twitter. There are actually people who do this, but there are also those who are using Twitter in smart ways and for good causes. I will be blogging about this soon in more depth, but until then I made a little parody regarding the Twitter homepage, more precisely the part where they explain why you should use their service.

Here is the actual screen shot of the Twitter homepage.

And here is my version of the Twitter homepage.

Hope you like my version better, and by the way, can somebody show me the research demonstrating that moms want to know that you are eating soup.
