CrisisCamp - people working together to prepare for the next crisis

Crisiscamp-map-5001-300x228 Hey, the folks at CrisisCamp work together to get smart about the next big crisis, quake, flood and worse.

This Saturday there will be a Global CrisisCamp Day and we welcome participation both in the cities and virtually:

CrisisCamp is a global network of hybrid barcamp/hackathon events which bring together people and communities who innovate crisis response and global development through technology tools, expertise and problem solving. Since 2009, CrisisCamp volunteers have created crisis response and learning events in over 10 countries with volunteers of all backgrounds who collaborate in an open environment to aggregate crisis data, develop prototype tools and train people on how to use technology tools and problem solving to aid in crisis response and global development.

I personally bear witness to what they do.
