But the most recent issue of the Journal of the European Association for Health Information and Libraries (2007, Vol 3, Issue 4) caught me by surprise. Oliver Obst’s “Web 2.0” column, Notes from the Blogosphere (Page 60-61) included the following:
David Rothman is one of the most indefatigable bloggers around, and as a result his blog: davidrothman.net – Exploring Medical Librarianship and Web Geekery is the only one which is ranked in the top 10 healthcare blogs worldwide.(12) Congratulations! However, David recently suffered a spontaneous pneumothorax(13) and had to slow down blogging for some time. Now – back again at his job – he felt seriously pooped.(14) Nevertheless, his personal experience taught us much about thoracic surgery and NEJM videos on chest-tube insertion(15) as well as the benefits of the generous use of anaesthesia and conscious sedation.
Oliver is very kind and I’m grateful for the chuckle.
…Now I just need to find a way to work the word “indefatigable” into my résumé…
