News: BMJ on Medicine 2.0 and an Interview with a Med Student/Blogger

What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree falls in the forest where no one is, does it make a sound? Or, if the renowned British Medical Journal recognizes that blogs, blogging and Web 2.0 technologies are worth feature articles… can that mean that the medical establishment has embraced social networking and Web 2.0 technologies as they apply to medicine? I don’t know, folks! But it works for me!

In BMJ Careers, Dr. Tiago Villaneuva recently interviewed Bertalan Mesko, a medical student who publishes an exemplary world-class genetics/Medicine 2.0 blog, Scienceroll.com. Read about this “wikipedia wizard and blogger” in the August 18, 2007 edition of BMJ Careers

Dean Guistini, a biomedical librarian at the University of British Columbia, editorializes on “How Web 2.0 is Changing Medicine” published in BMJ, Volume 333:1283-1284 (23-30 December 2006). Here is the citation in PubMed.
