Medicine 2.0 is a bi-weekly blog carnival which collects some of the most interesting posts about Web 2.0 and Medicine. The archive is available here.
A blog carnival is a blog event similar to a magazine dedicated to a particular topic. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains links to other blog articles on the particular topic. According to Wikipedia, "Web 2.0 is a trend in World Wide Web technology, and web design, a second generation of web-based communities and hosted services such as social-networking sites, wikis, blogs, and folksonomies, which aim to facilitate creativity, collaboration, and sharing among users. "
I will be hosting the next edition of Medicine 2.0 at Clinical Cases and Images - Blog. Please submit your links to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My last hosting is here: Medicine 2.0, Blog Carnival About Web 2.0 and Medicine, Year 1, Issue 9
Last time, I used Google Presentations to show the links (see below) and I will add a word cloud to plug in all blog submissions this time.
An example of word cloud:
The word cloud of food allergen avoidance shows the frequency of term use in that article.
I added a #Medicine2.0 hash tag on Twitter and you can find all related posts there as well.

Wordle is a website for generating “word clouds,” an alternative is WordSift.
