My new blog at MedPage Today started: Third Opinion! Here's my first post:

Knee Injections: Just a $1000 Placebo?  (And a related comment on PubMed Commons. I was also frustrated by a report of a trial on varenicline for smoking cessation.)

At PLOS Blogs, I hunted out websites that can reduce anxiety and depression.

Meanwhile, over at Statistically Funny, they were playing outcome mash-up: all about composite endpoints in clinical trials.

And added to Tumblr were: Studies of cave paintings have shown....; Wokka, wokka, wokka! (Pitfalls in science communication); Look, Ma! (A teachable moment) - and Jacinta's fortune teller.
