Hackers helping othersNovember 15, 2009
I just read about how a bunch of computer tech geniuses got together for an event called Random Hacks of Kindness to try and find new ways for technology to help out folks in real world situations. Rather than trying to develop the next Twitter, these folks worked on ways to help track down loved ones in a disaster or get important info out to the masses.
UPDATE: I just saw this audio slideshow from the same event. Enjoy!
