Medpedia: A collaborative Encyclopedia for healthcare

New York Times, February 17, 2009
Medicine and health are among the most popular topics for Web surfers, but an Internet entrepreneur says the current offerings are inadequate. James Currier has developed Medpedia, a free online medical encyclopedia that addresses what he views as the sector?s shortcomings.
