BehindTheMedspeak: WhoIsSick.org — 'Your site for current and local sickness information'


I first heard of this site in Miguel Helft's November 12, 2008 New York Times front page story about Google Flu Trends, where he wrote, "A Web site called whoissick.org... invites people to report what ails them and superimposes the results on a map. But the site has received relatively little traffic."

This should fix that.

Ok, we have one infection on Book of Joe. Everyone on the "Blogs that link here" are in danger of illness now.

Can I just go ahead and report here?

The other day my head hurt right between the eyes, and when I'd blow my nose it sounded really strange -- not a honk but kind of "snefuuut" sounding, and I couldn't tell if I was hot or cold, or both, and I didn't feel right sitting up or laying down, so I propped up three-quarters, and my throat had that scratchy feel, like just before a cold, and the nose sound got more like "sdecchhhkh" and if I tried to say "ancient Egypt" it came out sounding "agent Eenchipt" and when my cat jumped on my chest it sounded like an old barrel. I wonder if it's supposed to.

I can't wait to see my results!
