    I was reading your blog and thought you (or your readers) might be interested in a web-based medical dictionary visualization tool we host for free at our site:
    Visual Medical Dictionary
    It goes beyond regular dictionaries by displaying an ontology context tree (MeSH based) and interactive network graph of related drugs, diseases and therapies.

    For example: a search for “obesity” will show a strong relationship with “Insulin” and “Exercise” among other drugs and therapies.

    Please check it out if you get a chance.

    Hello there,

    My name is Patti Fousek. I’m helping WGBH (www.wgbh.org) and The League for Innovation (www.league.org) announce the launch of the Getting Results website at http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/.

    “Getting Results” (http://www.league.org/gettingresults/web/index.html) is a free online professional development training course designed to give community college faculty effective teaching tools and strategies to enhance their teaching styles and methods. I feel that you and your readers – especially faculty members – would be interested in our professional development resource.

    Please take a look when you have a chance.

    Congratulations for a nice and interesting blog. Besides the general structure and contents of the blog, I loved the idea of the Friday posts. It is a very good solution to the imperative needs that we feel sometimes to share some information that is not related to our blog, without having to open another blog.
    I will copy your idea, even the idea to do it on Fridays, just to call it “Casual Friday”!

    “Casual Fridays” posts – go for it !
