DisasterTech from Where2.0

I was honored to speak with Mikel Maron at Where2.0 about innovation in Disaster Technology, a topic that is extremely important to me. Here is the video:

This talk covers the ongoing efforts of: World Shelters, the UN Joint Logistics Centre, Humanitarian.info, InSTEDD, and Humanlink.

You can read about the development of SMS GeoChat, the Sahana effort for Burma/Myanmar (Radar post), and the Mesh4x KML sync engine on Eduardo Jezierski’s blog and on Jon Thompson’s Aid Worker Daily.

  • Hi Jesse,

    I can’t find your email online so hoped you’d see this here. Impressed with your work and I’ve some interesting overlaps that I’d love to share. I’m working on a service called ‘decisions for heroes’.

    I’d love if you could you drop me an email or ping me on gtalk on robin@bytesurgery.com ?

    Many thanks,
