Collective efforts

Last year at this time, Google debuted GMail, and many thought it was a prank, too good to be true. This year they're rolling out Google Gulp (with AutoDrink), and removing all doubt.

I'd like to participate in this kind of chicanery, but for the second April First in a row, I'm away from home and unable to put in the effort to craft a good prank. Maybe next year, as an intern! For the record, this year's hastily sketched-out plan was to liberalize the definition of online medical writing, with the goal of making this explosive blog the permanent host of Grand Rounds.
