Its good to see blog coverage leaking into medical conferences now. The ADA has brought on Anita Manning, former USA Today writer, to cover their 68th Annual Scientific Sessions which start June 6th in San Francisco.

She has 24 years of experience covering medical topics, I would assume mostly in a traditional sense, with longer publish schedules and less community feedback channels. Watching her blog evolve and the communication radiate from the comments will give these Scientific Sessions a broader reach and greater meaning. In the future, it will be nice to see more bloggers, and possibly even broader pathways of distribution utilizing services like Twitter, Jott or Qik to spread the message and grow the conversation world-wide as KOLs meet in important conventions like these that effect the healthcare of so many people across the globe.

Hi, thank you for mentioning my blog on your site! I hope to see you at the meeting -- I'm going to need some tech advice and you sound like you know what you're talking about. Twitter? Jott? Qik? Uh-oh, I'm in trouble.
