Health 2.0 and the Wikipedia Entry

Hi everyone,

Well it finally happened...I made my first wikipedia entry (actually, just a small addition) to the Health 2.0 entry. I decided to add the great definition by my friend and colleague Dr. Ian Furst to the webpage:

Health 2.0 is participatory healthcare characterized by the ability to rapidly share, classify and summarize individual health information with the goals of improving health care systems, experiences and outcomes via integration of patients and stakeholders.

I have to say, adding content to wikipedia is really not that hard. I've been toying around the idea of creating a dental wiki to formalize and organize a lot of the dental tidbits and facts of the blog. we'll see if it comes to fruition.

Take care everyone
