From the Editor

I'll be taking some time away from blogging for the remainder of 2010. My tentative plan is to return with a different approach. For example, it may rely much less on blog posts, and more on short news items that can be found via a search of the real-time feed aggregator FriendFeed (FF) for the hashtag #cancerSC. An advantage of FF is that it permits news items and comments to be added by anyone who joins FriendFeed, and thus fosters a more community-oriented approach.
