I’m participating in CrisisCamp today. It’s a worldwide collaboration bringing designers, programmers, photographers, writers, translators, etc. coming together to build tools for NGOs helping in a crisis siutation.
Today is for Haiti. I’m volunteering my skills in usability testing and design for projects already in progress.
Teams worldwide are all connected over IRC so you can jump in at any moment to offer your help. So far, I’ve seen websites, apps for the iPhone and Android for people working on the ground in Haiti and the list of projects keeps growing.
Head on over to crisiscommons.org to find a CrisisCamp taking place in your area or to find information on how you can start one.
