WANTED: Brains for Haiti - UPDATE

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post, "WANTED: Brains for Haiti," which outlined a idea for an initiative that might lift Haiti out of poverty. The idea was inspired by the work of Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, head of the Institute for Liberty and Democracy, on formalizing informal economies, and Mark S. Miller and Marc Stiegler, chief technology officer and chief operating officer, respectively, of Combex, Inc., a software firm focused on the development of secure distributed computing systems, who wrote a paper about using "smart contracts" to implement Mr. de Soto's ideas.

This post is to report that I have emailed those three men to inform them about that post.

That is all.
