It’s a great pleasure for me to host Medicine 2.0, the blog carnival of web 2.0 and medicine. We, medical bloggers, try to write more and more about web 2.0’s impact on medicine and healthcare.
My thanks to Berci Mesko for the invitation to participate in the growing body of information combining web 2.0 and medicine. For those who are not familiar with Berci’s several blogs at scienceroll.com, they are a must read. There are several pertinent items posted on digital pathology which I referenced here previously.
The next edition will be hosted by Medblog.nl on April 20th.

Bertalan Meskó has added a search engine to his ScienceRoll site. You can search ClinicalTrials, DrugInfo, eMedicine, Medscape, PubMed Central, WebMD, etc. – all at once, or selectively. The search results are catagorized, so you can see the "clumps" of search results, and choose among them. The Daily Scan has registered ScienceRollSearch.com and forwarded it to Bertalan’s search engine.
