stumbled across your blog this morning, and wanted to see if this might interest you, esp. given your coverage of Health 2.0.
After being at Health 2.0, I admit I have become more interested in new ideas and products, even if I am not endorsing any specific one (I am not). One thing that I really liked that is reflective of the Web2.0 world today is that the company posted a short video on YouTube, which I am pasting in here:
Way back when, when I did a clerkship at the National Library of Medicine, I was exposed to the Visible Human Project, which you can read about on the National Library of Medicine’s Web Site. At the time, the images from that project comprised 18 Gigabytes of data (I remember this number, because it was so gargantuan). It’s interesting to see that we have come such a long way in being able to visualize our bodies like this.
