I don’t know about where you all live, but the January Monsoon Season has started here in Western Mass. You don’t know of the J-Mons? It’s a recent thing, Global Warming, you know. Luckily for you all, the rain made me quite eager to stay inside and curl up with a good laptop.

Anyway, as anyone with a brain can tell from vaguely watching the blogs, PIH has been doing more than their fair share of life-saving work after the disastrous earthquake(s) that hit Haiti. I would love them for only this. But what’s even cooler is that they are being helped along by a bevi of open-source medical record-keeping software, called OpenMRS. Not only useful because it is stored in “the cloud,” (the internet) and therefore accessible from anywhere you can get a satellite signal, but the pricing model is far more usable in impoverished Haiti than, say, a “per-patient” or “per-hospital” model in a closed-software.
Geeks will first save, then inherit the earth, I suppose is the theme there.
