Peter is at Medicine 2.0’09 in Toronto; a great conference and as interesting and dynamic as last year’s inaugural event. He will be blogging mostly on the official conference blog at http://medicine20congress.blogspot.com/ – there are several other bloggers, most of them students of Gunther Eysenbach.

The best way to follow the event ‘live’ is through Twitter – search for #med2

MIE2009 is now finished, and people will be returning home from Sarajevo today, if they have not already done so.

Peter will be blogging from the Medicine 2.0’09 event in Toronto, Canada on 17-18 September (http://www.medicine20congress.com). There will also be an official blog for the event this year – http://medicine20congress.blogspot.com/

In addition, he hopes to be able to cover the Healthcamp Toronto (http://healthcamp.ca/) – I have not been to a Healthcamp yet, so I am looking forward to learning.

Looking towards “Web 4.0” in health and nursing June 26, 2009

Members of the krew (Margaret, Scott, Peter, Ulrich) have had a pleasant morning strolling around Helsinki Zoo. We have been bouncing ideas around, in part due to planning for the Web 2.0 panel that Scott and I are doing later in the week, and started thinking about what might be the next stage beyond Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. Web 2.0 is already with us, and people are starting to discuss seriously what Web 3.0 might be – many people see it as the true ‘semantic web’ – but what comes after that – and what might it mean for nursing and health?

We have just done a quick Google search for Web 4.0, especially relating to health and nursing, and no-one seems to have started talking about it yet. Nova Spivack wrote an article considering the move beyonf Web 3.0 to be towards the ‘WebOS’ (but are we already seeing that with the development  of cloud computing and some of the moves within Web 2.0/3.0?); he also talked about ‘intelligent personal agents’ (http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=4499). Is direct brain-computer interface (invasive or non-invasive) part of what Web 4.0 will be about? Is Web 4.0 related to increasingly blurred lines between ‘SL-worlds’ and the ‘real world’?

We will be batting around these ideas over the next few weeks as we work on developing a discussion/ideas paper on these issues.
