Words cannot begin to describe the shock in the wake of this week's tragic events in Haiti. I know I am far from alone in feeling that way. What I can put into words at this time are my thoughts on how we can accelerate relief to those in need: By establishing a network by which humanitarian agencies in the region can communicate with each other and the outside world.

Providing emergency communications for Haiti. « BLITZKRIEG BOPP Last night while sitting on the couch I got one of my brainwaves; why not try to organise a volunteer effort to set up an outdoor wifi network for Haiti using wifi? Now I have for years been playing with the idea of developing emergency (disaster zone proof) wifi units that without too much work can be used to deploy a mesh-type data & voice network. Why wifi?

Anyone looking to start a new hobby should most certainly consider collecting shot glasses. I find it to be immeasurably more fun than the more common stamp or coin collections that everyone seems to have. The fact that shots of alcohol can be drunk from the items of your collection is what makes shot glasses the coolest things to collect.
Jan 15 2010 The Haiti Volunteer Network is a volunteer effort. We need your help to spread the word to others -- so that people with skills, services and goods to offer can connect with the right people to make a difference. Keep in mind that you do not necessarily have to travel to Haiti to volunteer. In fact, unless you are experienced in disaster and crisis response, you may unintentionally do more harm than good by traveling to Haiti right away ( http://bit.ly/6M2Rje ).
