HealCam: Chatroulette in Medicine

HealCam, a project launched by the Medgadget team, got huge attention due to a recent BoingBoing post. I wrote about this interesting service that is the medical alternative of ChatRoulette months ago and as the only element of success for HealCam is the critical mass, this cross post might help them reach their aims.

HealCam is a ChatRoulette variant that invites you to select a disease, medical condition, or health issue (Crohn’s, back pain, pregnancy, bipolar disorder, allergies, HIV, etc) and connects you with someone else who shares your problems, so you can share notes. Sounds like a helpful way to find tips and commiseration when you need it.
