This morning on New York’s WNYC Radio program "The Takeaway" Mark discussed technology in the developing world, emergency response, and specifically the Ushahidi install in Haiti in response to Tuesday’s devastating earthquake. Ushahidi is currently mapping crisis information from the ground including continuing threats to the area, locations of relief services, and information about survivors. Information can be sent to Ushahidi via text message, email, twitter, and the online form.


Help support the cause by donating, and by contacting us at info@digital-democracy.org to assist in coding reports coming from the area and tag photos from Project Einstein Haiti. You can read more about the radio broadcast on "The Takeaway’s website, and listen to the full radio segment below.
