Medpedia-A Valuable Health Wiki is Born

Eye on FDA, one of my favorite sources, brought Medpedia's launch to my attention today. Medpedia is a authoritative medical wiki powered by a collaboration between the medical schools of Harvard, Stanford, Michigan, and the University of California Berkely School of Public Health.

As a wiki, Medpedia will likely be fluid, uptodate, and interactive. It promises to provide a wealth of useful information about health and medically related topics. Check it out!


Farewell to Pharmalot...and Ed Silverman's Return

I was delighted to discover that Ed Silverman, of Pharmalot fame, will be blogging again. He can now be found occasionally on the InVivo blog.

It was nice, albeit sad, to see his farewell from Pharmalot.

While I wish I had discovered his blog earlier, I enjoyed reading it very much--his writing was often pointed, provocative, and perceptive...and always thought-provoking.

I wish Ed the best, and hope we'll hear from him regularly from his new home.
