Crisis Camp Haiti - London is one of the international Crisis Camps organized in support of Haiti.
The day is dedicated to working on Crisis Commons projects, hoping to make life easier for people on the ground by doing what we can do from here. Common tasks are programming, working on maps, and helping to gather information from around the web into usable forms.
Please come if you think you can help in any way, even simple things like helping peoplewho are not at the camp keep in touch with what is going on, or keeping the hackers fed-and-watered. There are plenty of tasks anybody can do.
We are actively looking for people to help resource and organize Crisis Camp London. There is a lot to do!
Please bring a laptop if you have one. 3G dongles/Mefi may be very useful as venue wifi often has problems with the large load. Pens, pencils, paper, anything you need to be productive.
This is a day at the office, saving the world.
London Knowledge Lab are hosting the event. Alan Jackson (@AlanMJackson) will be lead facilitator on the day, with Barry Sage (@OBazaS) leading overall.
NOTE ABOUT LOCATION: Emerald Street is a bit hard to find because construction work is covering its sign. It is very close to Lamb’s Conduit Street and adjacent to the Police Station on Theobald’s Road
