Yahoo Disaster Response: Preparing for the Next Katrina
After learning from the lessons of Hurricane Katrina last fall, Yahoo! saw a real void in disaster response which it felt sorely needed to be filled. This talk will outline the proposal of what Yahoo! plans to build which already has positive input from the American Red Cross, Department of Homeland Security, and other non-profit groups. We plan to capitalize on and promote existing open-source technologies and open standards, like Sahana, to be better prepared for the next disaster. Come get a quick insight into the system and offer your feedback and comments.
