Crowdsourcing On the Rise: Featured in FastCompany

Today, Simon who I have been writing about for weeks now got a big article in FastCompany about how crowdsourcing can be used for medical purposes and my story (when crowdsourced a diagnosis via Twitter) also got described. I don’t even mention a reporter from TIME magazine asked me more details about it today. Exciting times!

This isn’t the first attempt to crowdsource a medical diagnosis via the Internet. Patients do it all the time on medical message boards. A doctor made headlines two years ago when he crowdsourced a diagnosis on Twitter. And UCLA researchers have created agame to crowdsource malaria diagnoses.
