OrganizedWisdom Launches First Human Guided, Doctor Reviewed Search Service for Health

We've been busy for quite awhile on the NEW organized wisdom platform which is a dramatic leap forward for us.

Today, we officially launched an early BETA of a new human-guided, doctor-reviewed search service for health. Our goal is to use search experts, editors, and physicians to improve health search.

Here is the press release:

Here are some early reviews:



It's still very early stages, but I would love any feedback you may have. This is a big mission and one that I am very excited about. Any suggestions will help us keep making the service better.

Interpol Show At MSG

Went to Interpol show the other night at MSG. My guess is the band is bummed right now, because they bombed. Musically, I really liked it. But the performance was a joke.

First of all, the place was only 2/3 full because they couldn't sell enough tickets. It gave the appearance of an empty restaurant on the busiest night of the week.

The stage seemed to swallow the band because they didn't know what to do with it. They had a weak lighting show and this horrible shim thing that was supposed to come down after the first dong but didn't. They actually had to stop the show to get the thing to drop. It must have been embarasing for them and I think set the tone for the rest of the show.

Finally, they have trouble playing more than an hour. And when you play the Garden you need to be able to play at least 90 minutes if not two or three hours! Come on, this is your opportunity to blow NYC away!

Anyway, I was happy I went to the show as I am a big fan. I was underwhelmed though and think they need to re-evaluate what worked and didn't work so they can get it right next time.

Hopefully they get that chance. Or if they're smart, next time maybe they will do 5 sold out shows in a row at Radio City and stick with what they are great at.

The Whites Stripes Cancel Rest of Tour: Meg White Sick

Read the official post on their site, but looks like the rest of the tour has been canceled which is very sad. What's worse is I don't buy the "Meg has anxiety" story at all and they could be done as a duo.

I was fortunate enough to see them twice on this tour (their private party at Irving Plaza to kick off the tour and at MSG -- both rocked!) and they were both incredible performances.

I recorded the Filmore Show (Irving Plaza) which you can still get here although the quality is rough.

OrganizedWisdom Featured in This Week's Economist

I did an interview with Jeanette Borzo several week's ago for this trend piece she just published on the Health 2.0 movement. Our company, OrganizedWisdom was lucky enough to be featured prominently in the article (below). Things are really heating up for our company: We're officially unveiling our new site this week, we are speaking at the 3 most prominent health care conferences in the coming weeks, and we are hiring great talent!

Here's the article:
Technology and society: Is the outbreak of cancer videos, bulimia blogs and other forms of “user generated” medical information a healthy trend?

In Front of CBGB's: RIP Hilly! We'll Miss You!

Snapped these pictures in front of the old CBGB's last night. The sad thing was seeing the awning gone.
