The perils of anonymous blogging

There was an interesting post last week (warning: it’s long) on the blog Canadian Medicine about anonymous blogging and why it’s not a good idea for doctors. The author, Sam Solomon, tells the story of an American pediatrician who was blogging under a pseudonym about the medical world and whose identity became public to unhappy results.

It’s a good example of how the supposed anonymity of the Internet is often anything but.
