pixels sideways Posted about 2 years ago If you could open-source one piece of technology, what would you choose and why? Zynga games and their subliminal addictive mind control code. :-) On a more serious note, everything related to healthcare from research to documentation that illustrates how (and why) a hospital can get away with bililng $100 for a couple of Q-tips. I like what Warren Huber said -- "If medical research and care & prevention provisions were seen as vital a public service as the military or police force are (and I would argue that the health of the populace is MORE important than either), then the government (that is, the government of and by The People) should be in charge of providing it at equal investiture." This should also be tabled for open source (well, at the very least, some discussoin toward solutions) and that is the future of the aging baby boom gen. With limited (and dwindling) income, increasing healthcare costs, affordable housing and assisted living needs, etc., coupled along with an increasing number of children being diagnosed with Autisim, we're looking at the perfect storm of holy crap. How and who will be taking care of all these millions of people with special needs?
