H1n1 truth versus lies

H1N1 Truth versus Lies

Technology Project Standard 1


The question
The Question

  • As the H1N1 virus has been going around causing fear around everybody we know, the simple question is “ What facts do we need to know about H1N1”?

  • So through an internet search we will find out.


Google
Google

  • I went to Google and typed “h1n1” and I got a lot of different pop ups so I went with the first one. http://oust.com/H1N1-Fact-Sheet.aspx?sid=SEM_Google&cid=OustH1N1&mkwid=WqTkKcgo -------- This is the homepage to Oust, the air freshening product.

  • www.Flu.gov was the next one

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Influenza_A_virus_subtype_H1N1 -> This one is a Wikipedia page

  • http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/h1n1fluswineflu.html --> This one is to Mediline Plus


The verdict
The verdict

  • Good Sites – Flu.gov, Mediline plus

  • Bad- Wikipedia, Oust


Why the verdict
Why the verdict?

  • The first two sites provided good url’s in that they ended in “gov”. The flu website was an official page of the Department of Human Resources. This was the same for Mediline as I saw in their about Us.

  • The bad ones started with wikipedia which says that anyone can edit this material, including me so that ruled out relaibility. The second one cited its sources but the fact that it was a brand name company made me wary.
