Today I had a breakthrough idea for an iPhone app that I think would help a lot of people. What if we could combine the preventative power of mammograms with the power of a helpful community of people such as those who edit Wikipedia? The idea is simple. First, a woman downloads the app to her iPhone. Then, upon running it, the app uses the phone's camera to take several detailed pictures of the woman's breasts. These pictures are transmitted instantly to the central mammogram server. Helpful men from all over the world could then sort through these photographs of potentially cancerous breasts, and using a simple interface say whether they thought that the woman should get checked by a specialist. Basically just like Hot or Not, but... for medical science. Sure, it wouldn't be "effective" or "accurate," but I'm sure that thousands of men would regardless be more than happy to help out a good cause by rapidly clicking through close-up pictures of breasts.
Okay, so that probably wouldn't work, but it did get me wondering how many people would be gullible enough to fall for it.
