  1. John,

    Thanks so much for this post and the ones to come – can’t wait to read them.

    I hope I got it right when I tweeted this summary:

    Worth discussion: @DocJohnG says Mental Health 2.0 = direct interventions galore; Health 2.0 = not so much

    The literature review I’ve been collecting on internet interventions for the last few years is indeed long on observation, short on intervention. For one thing, observation is cheap & easy: you scoop up all the posts in a patient community and report back what’s going on. Interesting, but pretty 1.0 and only proves their existence most of the time, not their relevance (and btw, guilty as charged – I’ve written quite a few reports about this level of internet health activity).

    Again, thanks so much and please keep writing while it’s fresh!
