Cool Technology of the Week

Today is my 150th blog entry since I started Life as a Healthcare CIO in October of 2007. Over the past 7 months, I've become a real fan of social networking technologies and have been an active participant in Blogger, Facebook, LinkedIn, Plaxo, various Wikis, and countless Webex collaborations. I'm a champion of any technology which democratizes the communication process, turning anyone into an author, publisher or broadcaster. One such technology is Social Networking Radio from

The concept is simple. Using a simple phone line and an internet connection, anyone can broadcast their own internet radio program worldwide. You create an account, establish a broadcast schedule, invite guests and the public to participate, and you're broadcasting. Shows are streamed live and available after the broadcast as Podcasts/MP3 downloads.

I recently participated in a 90 minute live Talk Show with Dr. Anonymous on Blog Talk Radio to discuss electronic health records, life as a CIO, and my experience as a doctor.

It's easy to use and free.

Social networking meets internet broadcasting, turning anyone into a DJ or anchorperson. That's Cool.
