Take a close look at this screenshot from YouTube (click to expand):
- Jim Ware, the legendary New England Journal of Medicine biostatistician: 8 views.
- Jerome Kassirer, Marcia Angell, and Arnold Relman, former NEJM editors: 36, 28, and 257 views.
- Whitney Elizabeth Houston Funeral Service: 994,920 views. (And how many more Whitney Houston videos do you think are out there?)
- Alpha Male Monkey attacks man: 2,135,280 views.
Draw your own conclusions. Here’s just one from me: we need to figure out how we can use social media better than we do now.
