News, Web 2.0, Blogs I Like, Journalism: Slewfootsnoop and Biomedicine on Display

Ask any blogger you know whether they consider themselves “journalists” and you might get a blank stare… or a wise nod.

A Scottish journalist/blogger, Slewfootsnoop, posted this great article about keeping up with a variety of newer Web 2.0 tools which may be of interest to professional writers, at: http://slewfootsnoop.wordpress.com/2008/07/28/web-tools-for-journalists/

Thanks for the point to Addictomatic, Slewfootsnoop. I like that site a lot!

Applause for the Danish group of medical scientists and faculty who write for Biomedicine on Display at http://www.corporeality.net/museion/. Following is an excerpt from their site, describing their purpose and intent:

Medical Museion is an academic unit with collections and exhibitions. We are part of the Medical Faculty at the University of Copenhagen. Our field is the history of health and disease in a cultural perspective, with a focus on the material and iconographic culture of recent biomedicine. We integrate four basic university and museum activities: Research,Teaching, Collections and Exhibitions “.

A recent series of posts on their blog describes their investigation of Wordle, a program which allows you to create your own tag-clouds. Your blog is really useful, thank you.

Both Biomedicine on Display and this blog are listed on the eDrugSearch‘s Healthcare 100: Worlds’ Top Blogs in Health and Medicine, which is how I found our common links.

Today I’ve added both Slewfootsnoop and Medical Museion to my blogroll.
