Ab Brody, RN, PhD Claimed Profile my.organizedwisdom.com/abbrody

  • Nurse

Registered Nurses rock...and I'm one of them! Asst Prof of Geriatrics... Learn More

This is an open letter to Organized Wisdom, and more specifically to nurses who have been "profiled" without their knowledge.

Like you, I was profiled on Organized Wisdom and my tweets being "harvested" and added to their index. When displayed in their index, my name, my photo and drug advertising were displayed prominently.

So, a few questions.

1. Did you know most nurses are unaware they have been profiled on Organized Wisdom?

2. Do you consent to your name/likeness being used to promote their site? Are you OK with them selling you as an "expert"

3. Do you consent to your tweet streams, being harvested, unfiltered and added to an organization that chiefly sells drug advertising? It implies your endorsement.

4. Did you know, once submitted, sites are copied, plagiarized and their copyrights infringed upon.

5. Did you know, that as a "curator" you receive no compensation, even though Organized Wisdom makes money hand over fist from drug advertising. Can you say exploitation?

Documentation of the business practices we object to can be found here:

HONcode violations can be reported here if you feel you're being exploited: http://bit.ly/k8G096

I'll be happy to answer any questions as well.
