Today is the half-year anniversary of Scienceroll. On the 17th of November, 2006, I started to write this medical-genetic blog and it really changed my life. I’ve been mentioned in Nature Medicine, Medscape, Cell; in several blog carnivals and blogposts. I’ve made a lot of friends (especially from Cleveland) and met interesting people. I hosted Grand rounds in March, I started a new blog carnival (Gene Genie, the carnival of genes and gene-related diseases). Scienceroll got special mention in Medgadget’s Weblog Awards. I’m so lucky to be a member of Ann Myers Medical Center in Second Life.
I’ve learnt how important the relationship of web 2.0 and medicine is. I’ve learnt that via web 2.0, we can forget about geographical limits.
Now, because of my works here, at Scienceroll and in Wikipedia, I’ve got a chance to work on a new project (I’m going to write about it soon).
Here are some numbers to describe the past half year’s blogging:
Total Views: 251,749
Best Day Ever: 118,370
Akismet has protected my site from 10,807 spam comments.
A special collection of my posts:
- My favourite: Fighting cancer with video games
- My best: PTC124, a Drug Against Genetic Diseases: Overview and Pompe disease, a rare but important genetic condition
- The most idiot: The Genetics of Santa Claus
- The most funny: Gene Genie: a Famous Blog Carnival’s Sixth Issue
- The one I’m most proud of: Medicine 2.0: the beginning of a new era
Thank you all for watching, it’s been my honor to write for you. In the next few weeks, I’m going to start new projects at Scienceroll to tell you more about medicine 2.0 and personalized genetics/genomics. So see you tomorrow!
Update: after the comment of Attacs, I think I should list here my masters; bloggers I owe so much:
- Vesselin Dimov, the pioneer of web 2.0 and medicine at clinicalcases.org
- Attila Csordás, the biotech geek blogger at Pimm
- Hsien-Hsien Lei, the queen of genetic blogging at Eye on DNA
- Steven Palter, our favourite medtech blogger at docinthemachine.com
- MC , the king of references at Neurophilosophy
They helped me the most even during the first weeks. I hope I can help other newbies in the future. Thank you, my friends!
