Hey HOT

You may have seen a few shout outs on twitter from yesterday's disaster
technology event at the White House.

A few event details at
http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/07/07/announcing-white-house-innovation-disaster-response-and-recovery-initiative-demo-day.
There was a livestream, and I've asked if there will be an archive of the
talks available.

The event brought together federal agencies, technologists, and companies
to share and network on disaster technology. It was remarkable moment to
reflect how far things have come in just a few years. The focus was US
domestic, but one presentation slot was given to Albert Gembara from USAID
Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). Albert chose to highlight the
effort of the HOT community during Typhoon Haiyan, and particularly, the
OpenStreetMap Tasking Manager (which OFDA has generously supported).

So just to say to everyone, your efforts in HOT are on some high level
radars. Thanks and congrats!

Mikel
