"Informatics for Librarians" Our very own Nancy Roderer and Harold Lehmann are featured Presenters, and here's a little overview of the discussion:

"Clinical informatics is not new, is sometimes confused with bioinformatics and is often described as “the intersection of computer science, information science and health sciences”. Beyond that, what does clinical informatics portend for hospital and other health sciences librarians? The discussion aims to be informal and is hoped that librarians will have a better understanding of clinical informatics and their potential part in it.  The virtual panel is comprised of a pediatrician, librarian/computer scientist (Johns Hopkins faculty) and another librarian (an informatics student)."

De-personalize your web experience? Who you gonna call? Yourself! Cause if you want something done, you know that's always the case. These tips are well worth pursuing. But unfortunately, I think privacy is a thing of the past. If your iPhone isn't not tracking your footsteps, all your other cyber gear probably is. But hey, don't take my cynical word for it, go ask that little screen you're staring into---chances are it's staring right back with a smiley face. Semper Fi Everybody!

As human beings were prone to bubbles, we gravitate to people like us, people with the same views, the same socio-economic class, the same habits etc. All sorts of studies show that if you’re likely to have similar habits and life-styles as the people you associate with. The web has been applauded as a way to escape that echo-chamber you live in. Except, as Pariser points out, there are companies like Google and Facebook and Yahoo looking to personalize your web experience,and that personalization makes your bubble even smaller. Making it even easier to forget that your world view is not the world view.
