Shameless self promotion

As of the time of this post's publication, if you type "explain health care reform" on Google, WAG is the number one hit.

The question is, should I view this as cool or terrifying?

On the one hand, kind of neat to know that what I'm writing is actually having an impact.

On the other hand, the first thing many people will read for information on health care reform will be written by "guy on the Internet." An example of how the Internet era is breaking down Experts' mediation between raw facts and the public's consciousness - Google's algorithms don't account for author qualifications.

At least, unlike some sites, this guy on the Internet has critical thinking skills, so even if I'm wrong on some things, you can trust the analysis to be well thought out.
