ScienceRoll – a new blog to explore
I just discovered a blogger named, Bertalan Meskó – a last year medical student at the University of Debrecen, Hungary, who is exploring and blogging about medicine, especially genetics in relation to web 2.0.
Even though medicine really isn’t my field of research a glance through Meskó’s posts promise interesting reading. Meskó has done interviews with a number of designers responsible for some of the great medical islands in-world – e.g. I’m looking forward to reading the interview with Dr. James Kinross who is working at the Imperial College of London (Division of Surgery, Oncology, Reproductive Biology and Anaesthetics) and is a pioneer in conducting medical simulations in SL. I’ve visisted Imperial College of London’s loaction in-world several times, and of course it’ll be interesting to learn what one of the founders has to say.
Another great medical place in-world is the Genome Island, and Meskó also has an interview and a video on this. Interested in in-world educational design and research methods (e.g. interviews) as I am, this blog really looks promising :-)
