Medpedia: Another Medical Wiki?
Is the Medpedia project yet another medical wiki? Or will this be something different? There are already several medical wikis out there.
Medpedia is being developed in association with four major medical universities: Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and the University of Michigan.
Will this be Web 2.0 at its best? Will medical wikis serve as the primary source of medical information for healthcare professionals and consumers? Since anyone can contribue to wikis, how will the immense volume of information be monitored and controlled?
