Web 2.0 and Medicine: It is about having Digital Creativity


In the previous post I wrote that to learn about Web 2.0 and Medicine is as important as to learn how to write. But the main idea here, it is to realize that with the technologies we have on our desks, we can express our ideas and share our knowledge in many different ways, not only by writing. We can use sounds, images, videos, animations, we can talk to others, we can discuss with others, we can share screens, edit documents at the same time, create communities, etc. There is no limit. Just use your imagination and be creative.

Digital Creativity

"New technologies give us the ability to represent so many different kinds of object in the same standard digital format (text, layout, image, sound, 3D object, moving image, etc.). They also provide us with the mechanisms to capture, store, manipulate and output these representations to produce objects we can experience through our senses. This unity of underlying representational form and technological processing provides the foundations of a convergence."
