Welcome to Linux Medical News! The purpose of this site is to facilitate, amplify and begin the process of fundamentally changing medical education and practice into a more effective, fair and humane enterprise using modern technologies. This is a site that can react to fast-breaking news using powerful publishing software that allows anyone to contribute as well as providing forums for discussion.
Too long has medicine followed a rigid heirarchy and either scorned information technology, or gone about it in ways doomed to failure.
This site is different. Technology in all aspects of medicine is embraced and promoted. Particularly Linux and open source software. Radical, free ideas and concrete embodiments of those ideas are (within reason) welcome here as well as a brokerage for practical advice.
Linux Medical News is a collaborative effort, and cannot succeed without you the reader for support and input. You can post your own articles to this site and can engage in discussion of the articles posted. You can also scan the Internet and point out links via a posted article to sites that others may find useful or interesting. Articles are moderated by Saint.
The future is ours, it is time to make the myths.
