I must say I’m amazed at the number and quality of weekly presentations in the SciFoo Lives On sessions in Second Life. This week Jean-Claude and Bertalan (Berci) MeskÃ³ moderated "Medicine and Web 2.0". I won’t post the full transcript, but I did learn of some interesting links.
One thing is I don’t know if all the in-world presentations are also available externally as PowerPoint/SlideShare/PDF/whatever.
* List of medical blogs in Englishhttp://medblog.nl/2007/08/15/sneak-preview-ranking-english-written-medblogs/
* HONcode standard for trustworthy health and medical web siteshttp://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html
* Healthcare Blogger Code of Ethicshttp://medbloggercode.com/
Above two are perhaps interesting additions to the Peer Review Logo discussion.
* Ann Myers Medical Center – Sprott Shaw College – Hospital Islandhttp://slurl.com/secondlife/Hospital/132/119/49
* Berci’s Medicine 2.0 presentation and extensive link listhttp://scienceroll.com/medicine-20/
* BioWizard medical article ranking tool (articles from PubMed)http://www.biowizard.com/
* TiroMed social network for physicians and med students ("your portal to the medisphere")http://www.tiromed.com/
I have added these all to Connotea with tag "medicine 2.0"
UPDATE: Jean-Claude has posted the transcript and other notes. ENDUPDATE
UPDATE 2007-08-28: Berci has also posted his experience in SciFoo lives on in Second Life: Web 2.0 and Medicine. ENDUPDATE
Next week will be Tuesday Sept 4th (since Monday is a holiday) with topic "definitions of open science".
