Henry Niman we hardly knew ye. We loved your mash-up with swine flu updates, but the MSM has got you beat in slickness with its fancy designers.  The NY Times now has a map up, as does the Washington Post. I think the Times map gets the data into my veins more efficiently, but suspect the Post map might be updated more regularly. Prove me wrong Times.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention Google’s Flu Trends, through which they’ve discovered that certain search activities are good indicators of flu activity.  They’ve got an “experimental” trend map up for Mexico.
