    You didn’t mention another interesting factor (or secret weapon) in the popularising of health & medical issues in the USA: they have the engaging and articulate Dr. Sanjay Gupta and we have … nobody remotely comparable. Dr Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon, is the Emmy®-award winning chief medical correspondent for the Health, Medical & Wellness unit at CNN. He also plays an integral role in CNN’s reporting on medical news, provides regular health reports for American Morning and Anderson Cooper 360°, anchors the weekend medical affairs program ‘Sanjay Gupta, MD’, and reports for CNN documentaries. He also contributes to CNN.com and CNNHealth.com, co-hosts “Accent Health” for Turner Private Networks, and writes a column for TIME magazine. It may sound like self-promotion, but he seems to be liked and trusted. He talks about things that people are interested in, in ways that they can understand. Now there’s something.

    The shift to Web 2.0 including co-creation was evident last week at a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association where 8,600 comments submitted in response to the draft of the new version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (called the “DSM-5″ for short — the 5 stands for the 5th edition of the book) helped spur changes in the draft.

    This is the first time that the DSM-5 has done something like this and is a fundamental shift in the Web 2.0 world of the Cs (conversation, collaboration and co-creation).
