Hi all,

at the CrisisCamp being organized at UNSW Sydney on the weekend of 4-5
Sept.

An enterprising team of volunteers and organisational supporters such

Entrepreneurship (CIE) at the University of New South Wales, and
Drumbeat, an open web initiative of the Mozilla Foundation and the
World Bank  are coming together on the weekend of September 4-5, 2010
in CrisisCamp in Sydney, Australia.

We will help find, organize and share spatial information for relief
agencies in Pakistan via open source platforms such as Sahana,
