A Social Sickness

Hmm.. how about this. This is an social app that allows people to record themselves as “sick” with various degrees of granularity:

Who is sick?

From the site:
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 in your area and obtain sickness information. Information retrieved by tracking sickness in my area can also be used to map sickness trends in my region.

Given the relatively slower adoption of internet and “web 2.0′ technology by much of the healthcare industry, our team of healthcare professionals, technology entrepreneurs, mothers, fathers, and caregivers set out to create a simple, user-friendly, and valuable website for the average consumer. We are currently building out our team and expanding our technology breadth across new and exciting areas of healthcare with Who Is Sick as our first offering. Stay tuned for more!

    Oh no! As someone who never actually gets ill, but spends a lot of time thinking I am about to get ill, this site is my nightmare.

    At the moment I can just get all stressed seeing colleagues sniffling away and touching surfaces (so I can make sure I don’t touch there), now I’d have to keep checking the site and seeing all these illnesses closing in on me.
