Random Hacks of Kindness

If I were either more qualified, or in the Bay Area, or both, I’d be attending the Random Hacks of Kindness event, a codejam where programmers and disaster relief experts get together to try to use technology to solve some difficult problems. I’m really interested in this problem – how do we use tech to make crisis response better – and this sounds like an event where things will actually get done, instead of just another PR gimmick where the first world sends computers to the third world without first checking if they have electricity. Even if you can’t make it, check out their website and look at the preliminary project definitions. It’s interesting and important work.
