Puerto Rico is a beautiful place. One that is suffering. The calamities do not cease. Some were man-made, like financial bankruptcy. Others have been earthquakes and hurricanes. Compared to most states, Puerto Rico is facing extreme conditions. Life is tough. For many here, these are the end of times. Puerto Ricans live in austerity and hyper-inflation. We have food shortages as well as power and water outages. Our roads and bridges are crumbling with each major rainfall. Can free software help? I propose a new application of free software. An application to help human beings to stay alive. To stay alive people need access to information and resources. They need to know how to provide food, water, and shelter; or where to find them. They need pioneer skills to live off of the land. The need to connect and reconnect. They need Life 0.01.
