Saint writes: "A meeting of the medical open source minds will be occurring in Fresno, California this weekend at Dr. Pepper's (his real name) house. Known as Fresno III after the first two meetings that occurred subsequent to the fall 2001 AMIA Conference, Fresno III will gather together some of the most active participants in the open source medical software revolution. Dr. Pepper of MedMapper fame writes: "...if anyone want to come to Fresno and provide input we'd
love it. The main development team is Alex Caldwell, Bob Shepard and I
(three Family docs, all with 15+yrs experience and computer-programming
skills) along with programmer Tim Cook from PM. Dr. Nicola Ellis from
Britain (PhD in informatics) will join us for this meeting, we've had a
British and Dutch contingent previously..." In other news, one of the most intelligent things ever written about medical open source was uttered by Adrian Midgley on the Fam-Med list. See the article at LinuxMedNews for details
