Five great years. (or, five years checking emails)

Stefan Johansson


Sometimes, taking a new direction make the unexpected happen.

When we started 99nicu in May 2006, I did not think much about the long-term perspective. I just came up with "a brilliant idea" and convinced a few colleagues that we should start something good and useful. For the world. Ever since I was a medical student, working with international student exchange, I had believed in collaboration outside-the-local-box. When we meet, we get friends. And, friends help each other.

During these five years, I have seen 99nicu develop into... something more than just a good and useful web site! We created a highly niched community, with a friendly athmosphere.

Many people have asked for advice, but even more people have shared from their expertise. Geographical boundaries or time zones have not been limiting factors.

For myself, 99nicu has changed my life. I have met new friends. I have learned about how neonatal medicine is practised around the world. And... I have been reading emails... :)

Former and current 99nicu Team fellows, myself included, have spent many hours house-keeping the forums. But, as a community is made up of its members (I realize this sounds like some kind of communism, but it's true), 99nicu has thrived only thanks to you. Therefore, I want to salute you.
