Track your sick neighbors

Who in Hooterville has the Swine Flu?  Now I can find out with a new iPhone app. Called Outbreaks Near Me, the free application gives the latest real-time disease outbreak information in your neighborhood.  (I’m already imagining the commercial for this one!)  “If you spy an outbreak, be the first to report it using the app’s unique outbreak reporting feature. You will get credit as a disease detective and your find will be featured on the website.”  

 Can you report stupidity?

    Yet what genius marketing — tapping into the inner snitch AND flu fear… if we do get virulent strain going around, watch this one take off.

    Oh, that’s just great! People aren’t imbeciles enough–now they’re going to start reporting every sniffle and sneeze. Does anyone care about the quality of their 15 minutes of fame anymore? Yeesh!

    That guy who lives down the street (you know, the one who yells at me to put my dog on a leash) looks a little like he’s got ebola.
