Twitter is getting more popular every day, and a lot of people around me started using it. I published this Twitter parody months ago, just when I started my blog and maybe two people were reading it. Now I got like five people reading my blog, so I was thinking why not publish it again. Nothing has changed, the joke is as fresh as ever (read – it is lame).
You all know people who write about each and every thing happening in their lives…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. I mean even people behind Twitter suggest you use their service like that. So, 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.
I am very proud to announce that my colleagues Ileana Lulic, MD and Gordana Brumini, Phd from Rijeka University School of Medicine and myself have published a new scientific paper. Title of the paper is “Examining the Medical Blogosphere: An Online Survey of Medical Bloggers” and it was published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR).
JMIR is the leading peer-reviewed transdisciplinary journal on health and health care in the Internet age. It is top ranked as the #6 journal in the health sciences category (out of 57 leading journals) and #2 in the health informatics category (out of 20 journals). Most importantly, JMIR is an open access journal, meaning that you do not have to pay to access and read articles.
To read our paper just visit the following link: http://www.jmir.org/2008/3/e28/HTML
We have also summarized our findings in a slide show presentation which you can see below.
We would like to thank all the bloggers who participated in our survey and made this research possible.
Medicine 2.0™ is an international conference on Web 2.0 applications in health and medicine, organized and co-sponsored by the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the International Medical Informatics Association, the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation, CHIRAD, and a number of other sponsoring organizations.
This conference, to be held in Toronto from 4th to 5th September 2008, is a successor of a highly successful “Mednet 2006: 11th World Congress on Internet in Medicine” Congress. It will be smaller and oriented only on Web 2.0 in medicine. However, these are not the only differences, because the organizing committee decided to completely change the peer review selection process of the submitted papers.
Consistent with the Web 2.0 theme of the conference, we are experimenting with a new “Digg”-like open peer-review mechanism, allowing any user to vote for submitted abstracts using a simple thumbs-up/thumbs-down rating system, with the additional ability for anyone to sign up as a peer-reviewer for a submitted abstract.
Go ahead and vote for your favorite papers.
