Scenes from Blog World Expo 2009 and the future of medical social media

One of the largest gatherings of medical bloggers took place this past week at Blog World Expo 2009 in Las Vegas.

The panel discussions were enlightening and insightful, and it was wonderful to meet so many of my fellow medical bloggers in person.

I participated in a panel discussion talking about the history of medical blogs, entitled, The State of the Health Blogosphere: We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby. Simply having a dedicated track at the world’s largest new media convention shows that medical blogs indeed have come a long way. (baby.)

Below are videos, pictures and links to other recaps.
