Steven Murphy was supposed to host today’s edition, but for personal reasons, he asked me to do it this time. So here is Medicine 2.0 again, a new blog carnival on web 2.0 and medicine.

Ves Dimov has come up with two, web 2.0 based posts. The first mentions the 544 histopathology videos on YouTube, the second mentions VideoJug’s patient education videos. I’ve already written about VideoJug which has best medical video collection of our time.
An other video-post belongs to Aleksandr Kavokin at RDoctor: Gallstones. Star Hospital. Episode 1.1

Joshua Schwimmer tries to convince us about the usability and importance of podcasts. These are audio files, so you can listen to the blogposts without sitting in front of your computer.
My submission would have been a top 10 list of the best medical sites in Second Life. Let’s watch a mobile quarantine training from Second Life:
Recently, I haven’t found new blogs writing about web 2.0 and medicine, but I just bookmarked this link to a great tool:
