On Webicina.com, the first medical web 2.0 guidance service, I keep creating free e-guides for doctors in order to help them get closer to the web 2.0 world and make their online presence as efficient as possible. The newest free guide is How to give a remarkable slideshow? in which I provide positive and negative examples as well as new methods about creating unique presentations not just in medicine.

It’s still in beta, but will be improved constantly and is created by 3 talented Hungarian developers. Click here to see my presentation:
I met Jorge Cham at Scifoo this weekend. He is a great guy and the author of PhD Comics, a fun site for PhD students and scientists. He has also published scientific comic books. His latest post features hilarious imaginary tweets from scientists. My favourite one:
