Ok, this isn’t really HPC news, but bear with me. This morning former Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz announced his new startup at PictureOfHealth.com. The headline there has me scratching my head:
Most places on Earth, the internet is more accessible than electricity, clean water, or basic sanitation.
The company will reportedly be called Informed Biometry, so I’m thinking this venture is about telemedicine or maybe something along the lines of the Clean Water Grid that we covered here earlier this week.
Schwartz’s blog does not shed much light on the subject, and even Ashlee Vance wasn’t able to get much of a story out of him besides a goal statement: “leverage technology in pursuit of better health.” In the meantime, it looks like they are hiring programmer types.
