Crisis Camp in Miami

This Saturday, on January 23 of 2010 in Miami, CrisisCamp will bring together volunteers to collaborate on technology projects which aim to assist in Haiti’s relief efforts by providing data, information, maps and technical assistance to NGOs, relief agencies and the public. Crisis Camp is free and open to the public. You don’t have to be technical to volunteer time. Crisis Camp doors open at 12:00pm and introductions are at 12:30pm. Crisis Camp will bring together domain experts, developers, and first responders around improving technology and practice for humanitarian crisis management and disaster relief. Each and every day, people across the world can find themselves in crisis. Whether it be for a day, a month or an area of social distress, we all have a common need to connect with loved ones, access information and offer assistance to others.
