You may recall that last year I wrote regarding the un-fair use of medical bloggers post and twitter feeds:
Fellow bloggers do you remember Wellsphere? Well, the latest “thief” of our information using our reputations and twitter feeds in a similar way is Organized Wisdom. Check out @laikas recent blog post on the topic: Expert Curators, WisdomCards & The True Wisdom of @organizedwisdomOrganized Wisdom (http://organizedwisdom.com and @organizedwisdom on Twitter) is a 3-4 year old company that uses a similar approach to filter useful health information out of the daily junk. ……Part of the problem may be that Organized Wisdom doesn’t only share links from “Health Centers”, but also from Wellness Centers (Aging, Diet, Exercise & Fitness etc) and Living Centers (Beauty, Cooking, Environment). Apparently one card can have information for 2 or 3 centers (diabetes and multivitamins for example)I feel used.Organized Wisdom uses the credibility of me and other curators, including so-called “top expert curators” as Dr Pho (Kevin MD – blog), to cover up the incredibility of others, with the intention to lure users in. ……..Just as with Wellsphere, I have asked Organized Wisdom to remove me from their expert curator list. I hope you will do the same.
FaceLiftMD twitter profile states he is a “Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon specializing in Cosmetic Surgery of the nose, face, neck, eyelids, & eyebrow in DC, Maryland, and northern Virginia.” Once again, he does not live in Little Rock, AR.
Vijay, Scanman, is a radiologist who lives and works in Salem, India. He blogs at scanman's notes and posterous.
Once again, I encourage my fellow healthcare bloggers (doctors, nurses, patient advocates, etc) to remove yourself from any association with Organized Wisdom and other sites like them.
