Twitter Mentions: Know who's talking about you

Twitter Mentions: Know who's talking about you

I was a little slow to jump on the Twitter bandwagon, and my hesitancy remained for using a Twitter app, rather than just the Web site. I started using TweetDeck a few days ago, and mostly because I was tired of not being able to see when someone referenced me without doing a search for my name at search.

Who will do the open source health IT study?

Who will do the open source health IT study?

In practice, studies like this can easily be a political sop. They are easier to bury than your kids' pet goldfish. Had the election turned out differently, that's what likely would have happened, because the previous government was deeply attached to proprietary models.
