Crowdsourcing Disaster Relief

Media_httptctechcrunc_vmzsd

Follow the TechCrunch link to a relatively short piece on the uses of Ushahidi and connected technologies in crisis and disaster relief. Among the points to note are that this is from the technology-focused media, that it’s written by guest contributors who are keen to spread the word about how technology can be used in these situations, and also that Ushahidi seems to be dominating this space at the moment from what I’ve seen. This is not a criticism as there are clearly opportunities for other to contribute – that’s the point after all – and as Ushahidi becomes more straightforward to use, more uses will be found.
