CrisisCamp London, Saturday, 23 Jan. 2010

leave a comment »

The London Knowledge Lab is hosting a series of CrisisCamp workshops in January and February. The first of these events will be on this Saturday, 23 Jan. 2010, from 10:00 to 17:00.

A CrisisCamp is an individual event with an overall purpose to create specific tools for a specific problem. Before a CrisisCamp, organizers reach out to responder organizations – governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and others – seeking requests for technological supports. We organize into teams to support those requests. We also develop around things that are just good ideas. What we create is open-source – meaning that it’s free for anyone to use, the labor has been donated, and the user community is encouraged to take it and build on it … to make it work for them. The London Crisis Camp will join the other Crisis Camps in building vital tools for Haiti.
