FYI for any of you interested in the intersections between disaster response and technology…
June 13 & 14th will mark the first ever CrisisCamp. This conference (or rather, unconference) in Washington D.C. will – according to the official website – bring together domain experts, developers, and first responders around improving technology and practice for humanitarian crisis management and disaster relief.
Putting all those brains in one place should result in some pretty innovative ideas for using tech to improve disaster response.
I’d definitely go if I was in D.C. [*sigh*]
(Thanks to my community-minded disaster-nerd tech-geek friend Audrey for the info.)
