Michael Moore has decided to do something a little different with the recent release of his documentary detailing some of the ills, as he sees them, of America’s healthcare system. He has encouraged individuals to upload their own healthcare horror stories to YouTube.

This is an interesting use of the Internet to help tell a continuing story, since obviously one film can’t capture all that’s wrong with our health care system. What I would also find interesting is if people added their own experiences about what works in the current U.S. system. Because wholesale changes — such as completely changing how the industry works here — aren’t nearly as likely as progressive, smaller changes.

I haven’t caught the film yet, but hope to do so over the weekend. Let us know what you thought of the film in the comments below, and what you think of this YouTube effort.
