Mysterian: Groove application developer, with a nifty telemedicine app to transfer and track xrays and other images from the field to specialists:  "Radiology Manager, the first product from our Mysterian Medical Suite, brings the power of secure, flexible, collaborative working to the healthcare sector. .. “As Radiographers, it gives us the advantage of having a radiologist to back us up when needed as we are often without their physical presence”, says Malcolm. “Utilising Groove for image review can ensure patients are transferred promptly to the correct speciality unit or, indeed, save patients having an unnecessary trip to the mainland.”

Info-Share: This NGO's updated site contains a paper by Sanjana Yajitha Hattotuwa detailing how Groove was used in the Sri Lanka peace process and subsequent elections.  Many illustrations.  Great example of ICT to facilitate collaboration in a developing country.  Inspiring work.  11:43:50 PM  permalink  

LocustWorld Mesh Access Points:  "The MeshBox is a box about the size of a small video recorder. It has a number of ports for connecting other devices and one or more on-board WiFi radios. It is a multi-purpose device, but its core function is creating wide area wireless broadband. This means that each MeshBox communicates with other MeshBoxes nearby and the internet signal is passed from one box to the next, over the air, until it reaches the final destination. ..

There are no plans to commercialize the core LocustWorld MeshAP device, this will always be available to download from the website as an open product. "

It's a linux application.  The standard box has Prism2 wireless, 32mb CF boot media, 128mb ram, 500mhz CPU.  Small form-factor and battery-powered boxes available.  Example hardware models: standard, outdoor (each about $400).
