First time for many things...

So, this is the first (hopefully of many) official blog posts from me, Dr. Geek.

I've been a tech head for 25 years, a doctor for 2 and a blogger for about 3 1/2 minutes. There's nothing that stopped me from blogging before, I simply never took it up. I prefer human interaction with faces and all... Like my aversion to long phone calls (except for maybe voicemail), my "problem" with blogging has always been the one-sided nature of the conversation. Even with comments and social media linking, there's always been something impersonal about the blog. I can't see your expression to know if what I'm saying is making an impact. I can't judge your personal feelings by the look on your face.

I also have trouble justifying spending time writing something that few people will read. Is there anyway anyone would be interested in what I have to say? If so, will it lead to "followers" (lurkers) or "friends," people to share actual discourse.

All that to say, this is the first of many posts. I'm currently revamping my style pages and taking some pictures for the header. In the coming days/weeks, I'll be posting a lot. Stuff about healthcare reform, medicine, medical training, technology, but more importantly how all those things affect me, and to some extent, the "common man."

Here's to your health!
