Google Flu Trends Expanded to Canada and 15 Other Countries

The CBC reported today that Google Flu Trends now includes Canada and much of Europe.

Rather than depending on reports from government agencies, which can lag substantially behind the reality on the ground, Google Flu Trends tracks online searches related to the flu, and gives a nearly real-time assessment of H1N1's progress around the World.

In related news, Microsoft has launched the
H1N1 Swine Flu Response Center, which lets you self-diagnose H1N1 and decide whether to seek medical help.

Are we entering a new age of corporate responsibility? Or is it just good marketing?
