Product Reviews

Here at Wired, one of our favorite things to do is obsess over, test, and tinker with gadgets. Because of this, our opinion on what's "wired" and what's "tired" shapes the technological landscape. In an environment like Haiti where technology is so relevant in contributing to the quality of life, it's more important than ever to provide quality feedback about technological tools — for the makers and the users. This group will be a forum for coordinating product reviews.See More

Solar Fire solar cooking technology up and running in Port-au-Prince

After a 2 year hiatus I returned to Haiti to continue my work on solar cooking. This time I am doing so as part of an amazing team of people from www.GoSol.org, a Finnish solar energy startup.

The situation in Haiti has not changed substantially since I was there last. In fact, Haiti is even more appropriate for low-tech, hand built solar thermal technologies than it was in 2012: fuel prices are climbing higher and higher and…

The fight against cholera: “In deep shit?”

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, 24 July 2013 – Lack of financing for a ten-year cholera eradication plan means that the disease will likely be endemic to Haiti for years to come.

Cholera bacteria are spread by contaminated food, water and fecal matter. One of the essential parts of the US$2.2 billion National Plan for the Elimination of Cholera in Haiti is the financing for…

GAO report on USAID programs in Haiti

If you're interested in where U.S. aid is going in Haiti, check out a piece by Randal Archibold in the NY Times covering a Government Accountability Report on aid to Haiti by the U.S. Agency for International Development. A couple of details caught my attention.
