Crowdsourcing the Flu
Sickweather is a beta service worth checking out. Like other crowdsourced tools like Google Flu Trends, Heath Map or Global Public Health Intelligence Network, Sickweather uses crowdsourcing and mapping to identify areas of flu and possibly other contagious disease outbreaks.
It’s flu season and if you haven’t gotten a shot, it’s still a timely thing to do. Meanwhile it doesn’t hurt to avail yourself of the benefits of some very cool technology to keep safe.
