Emax Helth and Story about CTS

I'm Skyping with my "emaxhealth1973" friend from US. I've written Citizen Journalism stories into Huliq. He has another CJ site about Health. Promised to write about mediracing and CTS - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

We talked about:
  • Fun
  • Learning
  • Community
  • Reputation
And how social media is moving from "content wasteland" to "content jungle" and what motivates people to participate on social media sites.
  • It's a game, play
  • Intrinsic motivation
[17:27:52] emaxhealth1973: is very interesting and nicely done. News about health can go under health category. We also publish which is all about health news.


We have a visitor from High-Point.

[18:06:57] Helge Keitel: High Point is a city located in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina -- the 36th largest metro area in the United States with a population of 1.5 million. As of the 2005 the city had a total population of 101,852 according to the US Census Bureau.(2007 estimates place the city's population at around 105,000).

High Point is known for its furniture, textiles, and bus manufacturing. It is generally regarded as the "Furniture Capital of the World" and "North Carolina's International City" due to the semi-annual High Point Market that attracts 100,000 exhibitors and buyers from around the world. The area code is 336.

It is home to High Point University, a private Methodist-affiliated institution founded in 1924. The city also has one of the few Bentley dealerships in the southeast.

Most of the city is located in Guilford County, with portions spilling into neighboring Randolph, Davidson, and Forsyth counties. High Point is North Carolina's only city that extends into four counties.


[18:07:50] emaxhealth1973: Hight point is close, it's about 1 hour and 45 minutes drive from my home town. We are in Hickory, North Carolina.

Hickory is a city in Catawba County, North Carolina, United States. Hickory has the 162nd largest urban area in the United States. It is the economic, social, and cultural center of the Catawba River Valley.

As of the 2000 census, the city had a Metropolitan Combined Statistical Area population of 341,851, making it the 4th largest metropolitan area in North Carolina. The 2000 U.S. Census gave Hickory a population of 37,222, but the city has enjoyed rapid growth since 2000, and its population is currently estimated at 40,212.

The CSA, which includes Catawba, Caldwell, Burke, and Alexander Counties is often referred to as the "Unifour," although this name is largely unknown outside the region. Hickory is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 1998 Money Magazine's "most livable place to live" (ranked 16th among medium-sized Southern cities) and being named an All-America City three times (1967, 1987, 2007).
