    We don’t plan to cover anything on the agenda tonight.

    • MB is working on an article about blogging for a class assignment and is recording the meeting as a test.
    • MB: It’s amazing how much fact checking we can do via Google.
    • MD: Yeah, we use Google to find things for patients sometimes.
    • j: What do you do to check the reliability of the Web sites?
