Why I blog and tweet

I have reached a new milestone. My work has been published in a a real journal, the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia. I was asked to write an editorial about social media--"Why I blog and tweet."

If you would like to read it, the full text is available here.

I am very impressed by your command of the French language.

I must confess that someone else translated the article into French. I hope whoever it was did it correctly.

Nice article! I'm glad you hit on patient anonymity issues. I've seen a few blogs recently disappear, possibly due to just this. One, "Things Patients Say," waffled (in my unhumble opinion) between hilarity and the submitter needing a smack upside the head, but I've wondered if privacy is why it went away.

I had no idea that Twitterland was a bastion of FOAM information. I gave up on Twitter ages ago but I'm encouraged by seeing strong support for FOA info, especially research paper and articles. As a lowly commoner I really want to see this stuff becoming more open and accessible.

Thanks for the comments. FOAM is very big on Twitter. I just saw an article claiming that ED residents use FOAM more than books.
