With a view to writing some more articles on the confluence of the web and healthcare – health 2.0, I’ve been reviewing previous articles written for the the Irish Medical Times and others on the subject.
- Blogging can be fun and informative (a blogging 101)
- The broadband revolution is coming (sigh. 18 months later, and we still must engage in this debate. Will Government ever learn?)
- Web evolves from all fours to walking (I failed my blogging 101 here on the incomprehensible title – you really do have to read it)
- Web surfers are now web authors (user generated content, perhaps done unknowingly, and the “ratemyreplacewithwhateverservice“.com phenomenen)
- Why visit a website, when it can now come to you? (if you are not already using RSS, shame on you)
- Podcasting may be good for health of consumers (apparently research is now suggesting that podcasts are becoming popular again; and not just because of traditional broadcasters making more and more content available).
As well as these, there was a piece for the Health Management Institute of Ireland on I which opined that online tools make it easier to communicate and share information – a gentle introduction to some social tools that i believe to be important milestones in this social media evoltution – things like wikipedia and twitter.
And not forgetting a short piece for a local paper discussing how the mobile phone has become an integral part of our lives.
for those interested, i twitter here.
