Sometimes self-promotion gets you somewhere.
medGadget.com, a great site in the spirit of Engadget and Gizmodo, but with a medical bent, has an annual Medical Weblog Award. This year, I am very proud to announce that Dalai’s PACS Blog is up for the award in the Best Medical Technologies/Informatics Weblog. In fact, I’m first on the list, which is an accident of alphabetization, but I’ll take it. I do have to confess one thing…when this contest was first announced, my blog was not on it. Fortunately, nominations were still open at that point, and with characteristic modesty, I did the honors myself.
In my category, I’ve got some stiff competition: HIStalk, iMedicalApps, NanoTechGalaxy, and ScienceRoll. Click the links to check them out. These are all pretty high-class, but none deal with the information with my level of humor, sarcasm, and self-depreciation.
Please go to the medGadget site and consider voting for Doctor Dalai. While you’re there, have a look at the other categories, too!
So far, Dalai’s PACS Blog isn’t doing so well at the polls. I really don’t need to win the prizes, but it would be awful to come in dead last…
