A Bit of History
first started a links page in 1997, when I was very new to the web. I soon realised
that many were doing the same thing, and some were doing it much, much better
In particular, Rod Ward's "Nursing and Health Care Resources on the Net"
convinced me that there was little point in continuing.
a few months ago, Rod became involved in a project which aimed to provide a 'peer
reviewed' directory of websites, along the lines of "The
Open Directory - Nursing" - but more academic.
fine, of course, and there's plenty of room for more structured sites. But my
gut feeling, and this was shared by many on the newsgroups, not to mention Rod's
thousands of visitors, was that it would be tragic, if not criminal, for such
a great resource to die.
I thought about it; I kept an eye
on the newsgroups ... nothing was happening. So I determined that if I wanted
it done - I'd have to do it. So I did. And while I ruffled some feathers in the
way I did it (That's another story), this site continues the great tradition started
by Rod: an Open Resource for Nurses, Midwives and associated professionals.
