A mixed bag to end the week:

  • As someone who studied social networks I was fascianted by this NEJM article “The Spread of Obesity in a Large Social Network over 32 Years“. This was blogged on the Clinical Cases and Images site (click here).
  • I’ve just broken my record for number of questions answered in a day – 18 – and still a few hours to boost that. I think I’ve overdone it.
  • Talking of Q&A we recently extended our contract with the NLH for a further year, supplying up to 50 answers per week.
  • Great news on the redevelopment front, we should be have the test version by the third week in August, with probable (?possible) deployment in early September. I’ve already mentioned the new and vastly improved search algorithm (click here for more details). The other development is the creation of a significant number of specialist TRIP search engines. More details when I get a moment…
