Barn raising, internet style

Robert X. Cringely writes about some fascinating ideas. In his latest article, he describes a new and powerful form of collaboration that is impossible without the internet. Cringely recently lost his son Chase to SIDS and wants to prevent other babies from suffering the same fate. I was skeptical when I read his original proposal to create baby monitoring techno-jammies. I was also stunned by the number of babies that die from SIDS each year. And as a parent, I can imagine how hard it would be to have your son die while lying on your lap. I look forward to reading more about the project and watching the barn go up.
