ReadWriteWeb Features Webicina!

Richard Macmanus at ReadWriteWeb wrote an analysis about and the curation of medical social media resources. He was very positive about Webicina and said Scienceroll is one of his favorite blogs. He also had some suggestions regarding improving the site which we started to work on immediately.

Webicina was founded in 2008 by Bertalan Meskó, a doctor from Budapest, Hungary. He also runs the well regarded medical blog, ScienceRoll (one of my personal favorite blogs). Webicina is aimed at both medical professionals and “e-patients” (the “e” in this case stands for “empowered”). Included in Webicina is an RSS tool called PeRSSonalized Medicine, which creates personalized feeds of your favorite media sources.
