Hi folks,

Thought people on this list might be interested to hear that Aptivate is 
hosting a CrisisCamp in Cambridge in our office space at the 
Humanitarian Centre, Gresham Road,  tomorrow from 10am. This is in 
emergency response to the flooding in Pakistan. One of the main 
objectives of the session will be to help Pakistan set up its own

CrisisCamp is generally a bunch of people who get together voluntarily 
to work on helping people in disaster situations, usually by using 
technology solutions, e.g. openstreetmap, identifying missing people, 
making low bandwidth websites, etc. Project managers, facilitators, 
software and web developers, and social media users seem particularly 
useful however so is anyone who can run errands and make coffee! All 

Aptivate got officially involved in supporting the CrisisCamp London 
initiative in response to the recent Haiti disaster, because we thought 
it was an interesting and Good thing.

We'll arrange some lunch for people who turn up!
