Healthy Too

This post is a work in process and will be edited frequently until this message disappears, stay tuned.

A precision and reliability exists in inexpensive consumer hardware built for cell phones, laptops and other devices. Further, there is open source software available to build some of the most robust  everyday medical instrumentation on the planet. How does one capitalize such a venture? Trust me, it won't cost that much.  The biggest obstacle: those making obscene and undeserved profits on the weaknesses of the current system.

"Open Source Medical Devices (not necessarily its true name) is being formed to bring to market these products PRICED AT COST. What does this mean? Very little is allocated to self-serving marketing, out-of-touch executives and shareholder seeking a unfairly large return on their unused dollars. 

'Friendly Health Care' will be a not-for-profit 501 3c corporation? Supported by membership and carefully vetted advertising. It will be member owned and operated like a credit union? Built as a mashup of Facebook, Google, Wikipedia, [other individual-centric organizations.]

One of the most prominent research vectors of this blog is to understand how to build identity centric artifacts.  Accordingly, concepts that come to mind in this context are: dyanmic, friendly, long-term, self-calibrated, efficient. One could argue individual identity integrity is health.

This puppy is on the fence. Let me explain.

The parent company is one person - one vote, and only one vote. Expenses are tightly controlled and transparent to any member.

Wikileaks has proven how robust non-governmental encryption can be. Access controlled by personal identification at the same level of robustness, ideally, would protect sensitive private information that does not put others (inside or outside) at risk.

NOTE: This part of BuzzTheHill is not fictional. Consider this post a public disclosure and as such, to the degree something inventive has been addressed in it, the specific intent was/is to put it in the PUBLIC DOMAIN.
