So, here I am hosting the premiere carnival for medbloggers and, well, I’m not a medblogger myself. I’m not qualified! When this flood of links came pouring in, I was at a loss about what to do with them all, until I realized that as an outsider, I could act as an objective observer and use this as an opportunity to figure out what the heck these people do with their time. All I had to assume was that the submissions were a representative sample of their efforts and interests (there couldn’t possibly be anything wrong with that assumption, could there?), and voila, I could quantify what they do.
So, we’ve been quantified. I suppose it’s time!
