John Sharp's name suits him. He has a sharp intellect and an ability to see beyond the obvious in the crowded fields of Web 2.0 companies and medical informatics. His presentation on Web 2.0 in medicine is definitely worth-reading and much better than my own effort to review this rapidly changing subject in 2005 and 2006.
The talk was presented at the conference of Northern Ohio Healthcare Information Management and Systems Society in Cleveland and the PDF is available for download here:
Web 2.0: Beyond Open Source in Health Care ( 3.4 MB PDF)
John lists several medical blogs as examples of Web 2.0, including Kevin, M.D. (of course), Running a Hospital and Clinical Cases and Images - Blog.
He also mentions Second Life which may prove to be the next interesting thing for the tech-savvy health workers to explore after they master blogs, RSS, wikis and podcasts. I have my own theory about the 6 axes of medical education in Web 2.0 style:
