xclr8r writes "Today President-elect Obama had a news conference announcing Tom Daschle [change.gov]as his Secretary for Human and Health Services. He mentioned that he and his team would be going through a discovery process in the future, even including grass roots input from his "Change is Coming" [barackobama.com] event this coming weekend (enter your zipcode for events near you). Among the issues Barack Obama mentioned briefly was IT in Health care. At the risk of sounding like slashvertisement the question has to be asked. Is this an opportunity for the advocates for FOSS to make serious headway in publicity and awareness by contributing to a nationwide solution for Health Care?"
