While talking last night with Bill, it seems there should be a way to find out what new groups have been created just by polling the database that keeps a UID for such things, and looking for changes, and telling me when groups get created (if we can't moderate group creation ab initio). This might help keep tabs on things that are "ultra private because they're shady operations."
As far as OSEHRA becoming a silent depository for "inappropriate content," could we track these averages:
With all of the recent talk about VA’s public media syntax and non-crystal clear comments on their enterprise-wide refactoring strategy, our team just wanted to provide a little clarity about where our contract is headed and what our project team is and will be working on.
Very interesting suggestion!

Subject: [architecture] 'Open Source' Personal Health Record (PHR) System
I have been a long time fan and supporter of the My HealtheVet PHR. It is a great tool, an innovative addition to VistA that was needed to better connect and serve our veterans/patients. What bothered me was not the functionality, but the extensive use of commercial software packages and vendors to create this solution.

Was looking through some "Discussions" and discovered that if I see the bottom of it contains "0 comments" I don't have to click the title of the thread to see if active content is buried in its comments. That's nice.
Was looking through some blog posts. Some are flagged ,above the username, as "new" in red.
What I couldn't tell is when "new" expires , that is, how can I mark a page for myself as "read" to minimize duplicate work? Is it upon re-login to the site, having viewed a particular page? Is there a way to "mark as read" a thread, even internally?
My intent is to upload the various file formats for genomic data as defined by the HL7 (Health Systems 7) Clinical Genomics working group, but I am too dumb to figure out how to load documents on the OSEHRA site - I will start by initiating a discussion.
It's great to see this emerge as one of the first major innovative initiatives to increase fundtionality of OSEHRA/VistA to carry it forward into the coming decades. I'd like to make sure we have a blog where we post key news items and information web sites on 'open source' genomic information & EHR systems. Thus this blog.
