Presentations with Q&As

  • March 26, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Two (or three) presentations with a binding theme of VTCs (Voluntary Technical Communities) and second responders.

Joseph Reeves is very active with OpenStreetMap and is on the board of HOT (the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team).

(Other speakers TBC)

If you have not been to the Mozilla venue before and am travelling by tube:
Leicester Square is served by the Piccadilly line and and the western branch of the Northern line. Leave the station using Exit 4 (Cranbourn Street/Covent Garden). When you get to street-level turn left into Cranbourn Street and cross to the other side of the road. Take the first turning on the right (the corner with the Pret a Manger) into St Martins Lane. Carry on down the right hand side of the street past Noël Coward Theatre, Robert Dyas, and a Starbucks. '101' is a glassy modern office building. If you get to the Duke of York's Theatre you have over shot and need to retrace your steps :)

    Joseph Reeves did a presentation about the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team at this event. If you'd like to learn more about OpenStreetMap and HOT, we have a OSMLondon meet-up tomorrow night in Mayfair at the Iron Duke pub. All the details here: http://bit.ly/londonosm9­ Would be great to see some ICT4D'ers there!

    Great to meet people with a passion to volunteer and share their excellent skills. Engaging with NGOs is not easy but is possible as my last 3 years has shown but there are many ways to work e.g. really good to hear about OSM working directly with local govt in Indonesia, Nepal, Haiti, etc.. It would be good to keep this conversation going. I am happy to be an intermediary between NGOs whether in UK or NGOs overseas and techies whether you're solo or working in an org. But as Chris said it's not just techies there is also the need for events organisers, communicators, translators and provision of food and drink (thanks Mozilla!)

      Good offer Becky. Same here - I've spent most of my career interfacing between geeks and charities or geeks and corporates and now am finally working in a space that seems to genuinely be a blend of all 3 (ICT4D), in theory anyway!
