We finally relaunched, a couple of weeks ago. We hope you like it, at clearhealthcosts.com

We also demo-ed at  New York Tech Meetup a couple weeks ago, and got huge props. It was really exciting: the people who gave us Twitterlove included some of the  leading lights of the NYC tech community! Plus my e-mail has been on fire since then, and the phone's ringing off the hook!

People are calling us the kayak.com of health care.... so exciting. (Thanks, +Chris Seper )

Betabeat at The Observer (thanks, +Kelly Faircloth  ) and Forbes (thanks, +Peter Himler      ) wrote about us..... and we're feeling pretty fantastic! 

One really interesting thing: people responded not just to the pricing disparities we were showing them (by a factor of 10), but also to the fact that we are journalists, collecting information by journalistically tried-and-true methods. That includes Big Data and also news reporting, which people really loved. 

The health-care marketplace: the last big remaining opaque marketplace. It's time for that to change.
