It’s been a while since my last blog (iPad—the future of slate computing? Hype would have you believe it is.) In that time the ipad has launched, Greek gods have been angered and the UK is going into a general election.
Bringing health related UK election news to the fore on doc2doc, the team has been busy collocating news feeds, political tweets and blogs to bring you the latest on the 2010 UK election.
Following on from the success of The Royal Shakespeare company’s re-writing of Romeo and Juliet using the power of social media, twitter to be more precise, doc2doc has asked members to write their own version of the Hippocratic Oath and then tweet it. There have been mixed views on this which has lead to a poll asking whether tweeting the Hippocratic Oath is a good or bad idea.
And sticking with the Hippocrates theme, the announcement of the winners of the new poetry competition, the Hippocrates Prize, has sparked debate about medicine and poetry among our more creative members.

In his book (written with Professor Jeff Forshaw), Professor Brian Cox (@ProfBrianCox on twitter) highlights how e=mc2 effects all and relates Einstein’s theory of relativity so mere mortals can understand the effects of space and time. As a species we find it hard to see time as anything but a linear path. e=mc2 explains how we should think outside of the box.
