Why the sudden interest in The Witch Doctor’s Blog?

Friday was a funny kind of day in The Spell Pantry. The Witch Doctor was busy concocting some very intricate spells, so she asked My Black Cat to keep an eye on what was going on in the world and also in The Blogosphere.

The first bit of news My Black Cat reported was that there had a been a revolution in Egypt and that the dictator had stepped down.

Sam was laughing and crying at the same time,  as she pointed out it was a revolution by the young people:

“Egypt remained under military rule since … until the Face Book revolution.”

The Witch Doctor briefly contemplated the role that the Internet would play in the future and indeed the role it had played in medical politics in recent years. MTAS and the suspension of a junior doctor immediately came to mind. The powerful “leaders” everywhere would no doubt be stressed by the people power of the internet in all walks of life. It is not only Egypt that will never be the same again. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Then My Black Cat reported something rather strange.

There was one particular post on the Witch Doctor blog that was getting unusal attention. A post from September 2008:

WHAT IS SO FASCINATING ABOUT THIS POST?

The Witch Doctor wondered what was going on and asked My Black Cat to investigate.

She did. She came back and said all the clicks were the result of search engines looking for “Gillian Needham” or varients thereof.

The Witch Doctor then asked her to do something really clever and check out the IP adresses of these visitors.

She reported back saying they were coming from all over the UK, mostly from the common internet providers but a few from  the servers of hospitals, universities and other institutions. Occasionally, there was a visit from Cananda and the USA.

So, what is Gillian Needham up to that everyone suddenly wants to know about her, thought The Witch Doctor?

And is this the same Gillian Needham, one of the leaders of the Scottish medical establishment who in 2008 who was selected to selected “to take part in the Health Foundation’s much coveted and competitive Leadership Fellows award?”

So, My Black Cat had more work to do to answer this question.

And being a very clever cat, she did.
