Crowd Wisdom for Diagnosis?

Yesterday I posted a short piece from Mark Graber, MD about an intriguing
new website:  <> is a new online startup that uses
the 'wisdom of the crowd' to suggest the correct diagnosis for patients with
unresolved symptoms. The project is the brainchild of Jared Heyman, an
internet-entrepreneur, who thought of the idea after his sister suffered
through an undiagnosed illness for over three years. Cases are submitted by
patients for a small fee, and anyone can register as an "MD" (medical
detective - cute, eh? No license required) to suggest a diagnosis or vote on
the suggestions already made.
