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. However, unlike Wookieepedia, Lostpedia and most social encyclopedias, only trained professionals will be able to write and edit pages on the Medpedia Web site, and all contributors will have individual author pages detailing their qualifications and backgrounds.
