Who is Sick? – awesome hypochondriac tool

Whoissick

Who is Sick? is a fabulous Google mashup which combines maps with an illness notification service. You can either browse to see who is ill in your local area, or add your own sick note and get it logged on the system for others to see. You can even set up outbreak alerts via email. Awesome.

It’s a perfect match for the web, and it might even be useful one day as a way of tracking contagions around the world. US and International. Sniffle, cough…. [Via Metafilter]

 Who Is Sick was started in 2006 with a mission to provide current and local sickness information to the public – without the hassle of dealing with hospitals or doctors. With a strong belief in the power of people and a faith that user generated content can be extremely valuable, our team set out to create an entirely new system for tracking and monitoring sickness information.

  • A useful sight. The team at whoissick.org would have to think of innovative ideas to get people to use the website.
