I was over at Panda Bear, M.D. today doing some reading, and it struck me that I’ve never given a proper shout-out to the guy. I realized that he had plugged me one day when I noticed a spike in traffic. The plug was written, most appropriately, on October 31, 2006.
I’m sure most of you read Panda. He’s well-known in the medical blogosphere (OK, I hate that word but it fits), and is somewhat of a celebrity over at the SDN forums. If you haven’t read his latest post, I want you to go over and do so as soon as you can.
In it he discusses why Call and Residency Training Still Sucks. It’s a great post, and Panda has always been known to tell it like it is. You’ll find this in nearly everything that he writes. He seems like he’d be a really cool resident to work with, too. It’s a shame that 99% of residents aren’t real like this guy is. A real shame.
Panda is a great writer. When you read his work it’s almost like reading a book. If the EM stuff doesn’t work out, I think he’d do pretty well in writing and web publishing.
Again, here’s the link to his latest post: A Few Random Things
Some other good news is that it looks like he’s moving over to WordPress or Typepad and a solid domain. I can finally get some trackback love from him that I’ve always wanted =)
A Note To Panda
Panda, if you’re reading this, feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns you might have. I can help you set everything up, and I’ll show you how to do a 301 redirect from your old Blogger domain (just like I did at my old Blogger domain) to your new domain in order to preserve traffic and link legacy. I recommend WordPress over Typepad due to the outstanding community support and numerous plugins that WordPress offers. It’s much simpler than you might imagine.
Edit: I see he’s got a Typepad Blog rolling already.
