And while you're at it, take a look at these so you don't have to reinvent wheels that already work well! http://bit.ly/1nw8mv6

Makes a lot of sense for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that curation is a great gateway to community involvement. I like that these aren't categorized, thus allowing (forcing?) readers to quickly view all headlines rather than zooming right into a specific area of interest and perhaps missing a new area/topic to explore.

Kathi: And then there was the time Dan accompanied me to an ObGyn office wearing a notched (rather than dog) collar. Hilarious!

First of all, Randy? Lee? Malika? Farris?? Someone please change my badge to Platinum! Yes, I'm that shallow.

Next, while wandering through archived posts on my personal blog, I found this one I thought might amuse people here. It's from my series about being a clergy spouse and explains how being married to a cleric comes in handy if/when I'm in hospital settings: http://bit.ly/WW89Db

Congratulations, Meredith! As a preacher's kid, I enjoyed your post and chuckled a bit. I remember how important I felt when my father entered a hospital wearing his clergy collar. I experienced that feeling again after I married a doctor and escorted him through the halls, but they weren't as nice to my husband as they were to my father. LOL @Meredith Gould, PhD

Yes! I do take being characterized as "an elder" as a compliment. In the world of social media, this has nothing to do with chronological age, but with time spent learning about and working with digital platforms.

Like epatient Dave and Ed Bennett (and probably many others in this community), I've been involved with social media since the early 1990s, before it was considered social media (e.g., chat room/communities on Compuserve, bulletin boards, etc.). What's happening right now is remarkable and I've been thinking a lot lately (and shared with Lee) about what it means to be an "elder" in this context. What are responsibilities and roles i/c/w mentoring and supporting newcomers? Stay tuned. I'll have more to say!

What a concept! Someone introducing a healthy body-based moment during a healthcare convo!

Video Paper is brilliant!!!! I'm definitely going to tweak this one and suggest this tactic for colleagues in other realms. I'm going to return to this preso for sure. Excellent. Kudos, Jason.

Yeah but/and, no one should be on social media unless and until knowing *why* you're there -- what you hope to accomplish. Strategy before tactics and choosing tools.
