Plastic Surgery 101 mentioned in Plastic Surgery News article
Plastic Surgery 101 made into an article in this month's Plastic Surgery News, a monthly periodical published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The article deals with the issue of cyber-harassment by disgruntled patients, and features the real life experiences of some Doctor's who've had truly horrifying experiences of dealing with the new realities of the Internet as a medium. I was the "blogging expert" who talked with the author about the phenomena of "poison" blogging, which has been a vehicle in some instances to attack Plastic Surgeons' reputations as well as the potential for rapidly causing widespread serious mischief and disinformation on sources like blogs, usenet groups, wikipedia, chat rooms, and the like.
