@danohu came up with a really good suggestion. Is there any way that we could partner up with Wikimedia to get access to the their data on pageviews of medicine- and care-related Wikipedia pages? Ideally, we would get data (based on their log files) as follows:
- In real time.
- reporting the page visited and the IP address from which the visit comes.
- From the IPs it should be possible to count the visits coming from hospitals, which normally use fixed IPs. They might have to be aggregated in such a way that it is not possible for us to identify the individual computer, just the institution.
- From the IPs it should also be possible to get lat/long
This means you can be a visualization of the world and literally watch humanity look for collective-intelligence built knowledge on medicine and care. It should nicely make the general point that communities already play an important role in care, as well as open the door for all sort of interesting correlations.
What do you think?
