Going Anonymous

Not deep-cover CIA anonymous. But I have decided to take my name off this blog, and any other easily-identifying information. Mostly this is because it occurs to me that if I should blog about my work there is a potential to leave sensitive information out there -- patient info, comments about the hospital or co-workers, etc, and I should at least make a good faith effort to provide some cover of privacy. Furthermore, given my often sardonic "voice" and the somewhat cynical title of the blog, it's probably better if my employer and the hospital at which I work are not readily apparent.

Is this wimpy? 'Cause I don't want to be a wimp.

And it's not like I am going to get fired for voicing my opinion -- I run the group.

But I think it is prudent. I have tried to get all the obvious ID off the site, but as I have noted before, I am not too great with the HTML, so if you notice anything, let me know. I think I will leave my family homepage linked, since family and friends will be the vast majority of my traffic.


  1. I thought you were brave using that title ;-)

  2. So I shouldn't link to you from my blog as "ER Dr. Fname Lname's of such and such medical center's irreverant blog entitled Movin' Meat"?

    I'm enjoying your blog. Keep it up.

  3. You once told me that as much as discretion is the better part of valor, so is cowardice the better part of discretion.


  4. Bravely bold Sir Robin,
    Rode forth from Camelot.
    He was not afraid to die,
    Brave, brave Sir Robin!
    He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways,
    Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!

    Of course when I post something inappropriate or offensive and it makes news and the local paper headlines "ER doctor loses job over blog" everybody who reads it will say "What did he expect? You can't say that without losing your job!" So maybe a little prudence might be a good idea.

    Run Away!
    Run Away!
