Blogposium, April 2006

The Blogposium, held from April 18-20, was an innovation in collaborative blogging and wiki building.

The effort marshalled the expertise and energy of several dozen health bloggers and volunteers to expand and refine this Clinical Informatics Wiki. Bloggers posted their first drafts of entries as posts or links to this wiki and invited readers to provide comments and edit suggestions.

While many bloggers and readers contributed to this Web 2.0 innovation in collaborative work, key participants included the follow blogs. Please visit them and thank them for their contributions:
