these renegade innovators are just disrupting out-dated concepts like "herd immunity" and "protecting your own children from preventable life-threatening disease".

stop living in the past. the future is going to be a sharing economy based ecosystem of wearable smart-infections and will be powered by a totally integrated global-local-mobile cloud™ of plagues.

Thank you for you interest! The ability of measles to scale up from one case to a 14-state epidemic is well proven; I'll send you a whitepaper written by the CDC. In order to monetize on top of the measles I envision a mix of techniques that capitalize on its proven virality to deliver sponsored native content, exploiting the captive eyeballs of people bedridden by the measles. Sectors which may be interested include cosmetics, pharmaceutical, and funeral services.

Cholera distribution faces a last mile problem similar to providing broadband currently, where getting infected water to each home is costly and requires extensive infrastructure. My disruptive model is to provide cholera as an over-the-top service through the preexisting water pipes! That way, we only need to contaminate the water system with sewage at centralized points, and distribution from there is automatic. This method promises great cost savings and decreased time-to-market.
