A Blogpost in Unexpected Places

I have the honor of being a guest author on the blog for our library director, Jane Blumenthal. Here is my first blogpost in that location.

Health, Science, & Libraries: Insight in Unexpected Places: http://mblog.lib.umich.edu/hsldir/archives/2008/07/insights_in_une.html

It begins with this quote:

"Health is personal. Health Care is not. The term is a euphemism for Condition Treatment, and it's not about patients. It's about systems, and most of those are both proprietary and closed."
Doc Searls. "The Patient as the Platform" LINUX Journal. http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/patient-platform

and explores how social media brought me to it, with various ramblings along the way. Twitter is mentioned, as are other social media.
