Doctors Seeing a Rise In "Google-itis"

mjdescy Re:Rarity score (368 comments)

I think every website that lists all these varied diseases should put a rarity score next to each illness.

I agree completely. Maybe one way to lower healthcare is to automate some of the diagnostic procedures through information systems. More information available to patients is better, not worse, for patient care overall.

Regulators Investigating Unpaid Internships

mjdescy Re:Class discrimination too (182 comments)

I totally agree. I tried to get internships in film while I was in college, and none of them paid. It would have been impossible for me to live in NYC or LA without income. No wonder so many young directors and producers are the sons or daughters of hugely successful and wealthy ones.
