What is FOAMed?

The best description of FOAMed comes from Life in the Fastlane Medical Blog:

“FOAM is a collection of resources, a community and an ethos. The FOAM community spontaneously emerged from the collection of constantly evolving, collaborative and interactive open access medical education resources being distributed on the web with one objective — to make the world a better place. FOAM is independent of platform or media — it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, Google hangouts, online videos, text documents, photographs, facebook groups, and a whole lot more.”

LITFL has an entire article about FOAMed and its creation which you can read here.
