It is that time of year…a time to sit back (momentarily) and reflect on the last 12 months
A time to be thankful, and to thank those for making the LITFL blog possible and a time to look to the future
The Life in the Fast Lane project arose out of a need to share collated and curated content, to create a conversation in the emergency medicine and critical care blogosphere and to improve the provision of adjunctive education for all.
Thank you to my amigos
Thank you to to all the detractors, the naysayers and the non-believers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Your apathetic derision and condescension provided the ultimate motivation for us to continue our quest to provide high quality free education for all.
Thank you to the amazing team of LITFL authors without whom we would not have been able to write almost 3000 blog posts or welcome our 9,000,000th visitor…
In particular a heartfelt thanks the amazing Chris Nickson (precordialthump) for his irrepressible work on the critical care compendium and case based questions; Kane Guthrie (kane_guthrie) for his succinct and awesome weekly LITFL reviews and views on all things emergency and critical care nursing; Ed Burns for the enduring legacy of the ECG library and the literary brilliance of our Fence Splitting Michelle Johnston (Eleytherius).
2013 is already so full of promise with so many amazing and inspirational projects to start, to grow and to develop. The LITFL team is looking forward to sinking their teeth into…
- FOAMed – continuing to support the concept of open access medical education for all with the FOAMEM.com project and the #FOAMed conversation
- GMEP – Supporting the global medical education project to provide free media repository, contextual learning platform to expand the open access resources
- CCC – completing the critical care compendium with Chris
- SMACC – joining forces with the brightest brains on the planet to talk social media, FOAM, critical care and evidence based medicine [SMACC 2013 conference]
Thank you, thank you, thank you to my beautiful and amazing wife Fiona and my awesome kids William, Hamish and Olivia for your continued unwavering, undiminished and inspirational support – you guys are extraordinary.
