Jeff Howe’s blog post, “Can We Crowdsource Medical Expertise?” elicited the following comment from Daniel Reda of “Personally, just like I have batting averages, crash test ratings and historical earnings, I’d like to see the data on whoever interprets my MRI and whoever makes my diagnosis, regardless of whether it’s an amateur in a foreign country or the chief of staff at the world’s ‘best’ medical center.”

This comment, and Howe’s post, get to the heart of participatory medicine. I would love to hear what people think about “crowdsourcing” and health care.
