Medical bloggers that shut down their online presence

The question is: do we really need to be online?

The issue can become truly amletic.

Dr. Ves highlights interesting viewpoints. How can we deal with information overload? Can blog posts be valuable and authoritative?

Too much feedback could scare physicians, ending up struggling to find the time for online interactions. Too many could indeed interfere with patient care time. But isn't a blog success measured by its views and comments?

The solution? Probably a minimalistic and very professional online presence. Keeping in mind that online resources can be a very precious tool, but with extreme moderation.
