Stuff on the net

On March 5, 2009, in links, stuff on the net, by Karen Grepin

Here is a roundup of good stuff to read on the net these days:

1. Can you justify buying fine wine when children are dying in Africa? Peter Singer’s new book argues that you cannot, Bill Easterly disagrees.

2. IntraHealth teams up with Youssou N’Dour to promote their “OPEN” iniative to get open source solutions to improve health care into clinics in Africa.

3. Sanjay Gupta is reportedly out of the running to become Surgeon General. There goes my best chance of ever getting to meet Anderson Cooper (thanks to Alana for the update on Twitter).

4. Yesterday I posted about the ICC decision to arrest al-Bashir of Sudan. I am happy to know that I am not the only one who does not have a clue what this will mean for the future of the people of Sudan. Alex de Waal has an excellent analysis of the situation that is a must read for anyone interested in this topic.
