Posting documents on a blog

The standard limitations of a blog are that you can only post the link to a document. That’s not what I want. I want to put the actual document or tag on the blog page and have people see it.But just as you would expect, there is a workaround program call Scribd. Scribd is a free¬†service (or at least so far its free) that is supposed to let you load the actual word or .pdf file. I just signed up on the web site and now lets give it a try!

ok, That didn’t work. As usual the tutorial pages are similar but not exactly what you see when yo go through the actual app. Probably a lag between the tutorial and new updates to the website from frustrating as always. Let’s try again.

First part is ok, but there is no share button or row of buttons as depicted in the tutorial. The only option is save. There is no share.

Lets try HTML format

That didn’t work either.

Lets try pasting link from Scribd in Visual

That didn’t work either. I’ll try scribd support later.

Microsoft Tags


Microsoft tags are an exciting way to bring content to our subscribers in a new and exciting way. Orthopedic surgery meetings that we cover featuring shoulder arthroscopy, hip arthroscopy and sports medicine knee presentations could be brought to life with links to web sites, videos or files of interest. Can you put a scannable tag on a blog? Not sure now. I can put the link to the tag on the blog page but not the tag itself. It does work in the sense that when you click on the url, a separate web page opens that shows the tag itself. Scan that with your phone and voila! you are on Contacted support for an answer. Probably just missed a step.

Stay tuned.

Metcalf/AANA Meeting 2011

Two superb days of shoulder and two more of knee. There was also a hip arthroscopy seminar led by Tom Byrd and Richard Ferkel did an excellent job with foot and ankle. Fresh snow each night made the skiers happy. The great organization by Dr. Bob Burks and meeting coordinator Sue Duncan ¬†gave everyone the perfect blend of learning and living. I don’t know how they will top this for Metcalf/AANA January 14-17th 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Scottsdale Princess Hotel is a spectacular venue. The skiers had their meeting. Now it’s time for the golfers!

The entire Metcalf/AANA meeting will be available on Every lecture, every panel plus extended faculty interviews that explore selected topics in depth.

Check out the Esch SDSI 2010 meeting on to get an idea of the product quality.
