Does the Internet Promote the Same Dynamic as “Road Rage?”

The best way to get an answer on the Internet is not to ask a question. It’s to post the wrong answer.

This “law” by Ward Cunningham is known to those with social media accounts. Once you’re arguing with a computer – social norms vanish! People like to fight online more than they like to help.

They’re quicker to point out flaws than to become a friendly resource.

In fact, psychologist Jonathan Haidt wrote that if you constantly express anger in your private conversations, your friends will likely find you tiresome. But, when there’s an audience, the payoffs are different and outrage can boost your status.

A study by William J. Brady at NYU measured half a million tweets and found that each moral or emotional word used in a tweet increased its virality by 20 percent.

Happy National Osteopathic Medicine Week 2020

My Fond Memories

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA

National Osteopathic Medicine Week takes place April 19-25, 2020. It is a special time where the osteopathic medicine profession comes together to help educate the world about what osteopathic medicine is.

At first glance, the difference between DOs and MDs is difficult to distinguish. They’re both fully licensed physicians, trained in diagnosing and treating illnesses and disorders and providing preventive care.

But, the foundation of osteopathic medicine is that people are more than just the sum of their body parts.

Learn more about National Osteopathic Medicine Week and how you can share your DO pride. 

Assessment: I trained at several DO hospitals in my early career for which I am very grateful.
