A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of giving a presentation to a tri-chapter meeting of the Medical Library Association. The topic was why some patients with chronic disease are disaffected and how online social networks have met some of their needs. I try to offer a balanced perspective – both the good and bad of online social networks.

The live presentation was filmed but the room was a bit on the dark side. So, despite a laudable job filming by my colleague, Judy, I decided to put up a slideshow with voiceovers.
