Web 2.0 April Fool’s Day Hoax

| April 1, 2009

Slow April Fool's Day for me all in all.  Received this e-mail from SlideShare:

Hi tissuepathology,

We've noticed that your slideshow on SlideShare has been getting a LOT of views in the last 24 hours. Great job … you must be doing something right. 😉

Why don't you tweet or blog this? Use the hashtag #bestofslideshare so we can track the conversation.

Congratulations,
-SlideShare Team

Having never used a "hashtag" on Twitter, naturally I googled "#bestofslideshare" to see what came up and found this story on Mashable.

Apparently some people caught on and others didn't given twitscoop search.

I do recall falling for the Sidd Finch hoax from Sports Ilustrated which makes this Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time.

    In medicine, pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease. The related scientific study of disease processes is called “general pathology.” Medical pathology is divided into two main branches, anatomical pathology and clinical pathology. Medical pathologists work through examination of organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and whole bodies (autopsies).
