Here are a few of the 33 charts posts that drew traffic and chatter in 2013. Others were just important to me and my thinking. It’s amazing to sequentially rifle through my posts for the year. It’s like an archeological dig into my thinking and lifestream.
- How’s Your Dad? I lost my father this year. Here’s how I managed him from 2,000 miles away.
- 12 Things about Doximity you probably didn’t know. This was the most frequently visited page on 33c in 2013. It may be interesting to note that this was a sponsored post. It now lives in the long tail to the tune of 680 page views per month.
- The Two Things on the Web. This post discusses the only two things you find on the internet. It was fewer than 50 words in length but drew multiples of that in comments and social dialog.
- Doctors, Patients, Old and New. This schizoid take on the modern physician drew attention. Probably because it’s true. We want the benefits of digital and analog wrapped up in one doctor.
- Advice to New Doctors: It’s No Longer About You. My wake up words to incoming residents at Baylor College of Medicine.
- The Age of Individual Responsibility in Medicine. This was a concept that I built on this year and one that i’ll continue to think about.
- Cyberutopian Exhibitionism. (If for nothing else, the title) The echochamber loves to blindly push the shiny object. The dipstick in the diaper served as a good example.
- Scientists and the Culture of Permission. One reason we see so few physicians thinking in public.
- Intimacy, Mission and a Physician’s Public Role. And more on why physicians are less inclined to come out to the great wide open.
- When the Audience Becomes the Publisher. This kerfuffle with Las Vegas 8 TV drew lots of chatter and served as a clear example of why doctors need to be front and center in public dialog.
