Before another weekend arrives…
Let me recap last weekend. As you know I attended WhereCampPDX, a conference that brought together nearly 100 innovative, tech-savvy people to discuss topics related to geo-location. Much to my delight, disaster preparedness/recovery ended up being one of the big hot topics.
In fact, people were so interested that a few of us formed a group to further explore using Web 2.0 tools to connect people and resources in preparation for disaster. Discussion has just begun on http://nowwhatpdx.ning.com. Please join and share your ideas for making disaster preparedness creative and collaborative!
I also met several mapping experts, including a guy who created real-time maps for the recent California wildfires. Very cool. There are a couple of nice write-ups about the conference on OSnews and DailyWireless.org.
