LXer: Collaborating for a cure: Cancer, medical records, and an open philosophy

Published at LXer:

Salvatore Iaconesi has brain cancer. And he's doing something about it that most don't: taking it into his own hands. And the hands of hundreds of others, as they all work together to cure his disease (and offer hope to others).The project is called The Cure, and at it's apex as many as 200 peopleódoctors, surgeons, traditional practitioners, shamans, artists, designers, hackers, software engineers, ex-patientsówere working simultaneously (and voluntarily) to contact people, arrange appointments, send out documentation and ask for opinions, and then collect all of the resulting information and classify it. They used pre-exisiting software tools and even produced and assembled some themselves.Today, Salvatore uses all of this critical information to form a personal strategy, which he says is showing positive results. In this interview find out how open source software and concepts power this fantastic exploration into self-managed therapy.
