365 Photo Project

January 31, 2010 § Leave a comment

Tomorrow, on February 1st, I’m starting a 365 photo project, where I’ll post one photo yeach day for a year (photo credit).

I will strive to post mostly fresh photos, but I will also post some old ones I’ve dug out from the archives.

I’ve set up a separate blog for this project, at http://sterileeye365.wordpress.com. Be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed or subscribe by email at the site. I will also post the updates on Twitter.

Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I’ll hopefully do!

UPDATE (05.10.10): The 365 blog has been shut down and the photos archived here.

We would decide that we needed to make a video of some operation, and then had to go find a surgeon who would agree to take me along. We always found one, but they didn’t always come easy. « Read the rest of this entry »

A Video and a Great Blog

January 9, 2010 § 1 Comment

Two things caught my attention this last week:

  1. The video above, from KORB, directed by Rimantas Lukavicius. Absolutely stunning! Hat tip to Street Anatomy.
  2. The blog Medical Moments in 55 Words, where internist WordDoc writes about her patient encounters using only 55 words. The result has almost haiku-like qualities. Best blog I’ve read in ages!
