KatrinaList redux - what we do right

[Again, off-topic but current....]

I am blown away by the techie response to Katrina - predominantly in the form of KatrinaList. And this is a distributed, non-top-down model of cooperative development.

(Politically, it could be asked why didn't US techies respond this way to the tsunami - which I don't have a pat answer for, though this kind of response seems to me a more obvious step in tech-saturated, consistent-language/ spelling U.S.)

A great (informal) timeline of what has happened here (somewhat techie) - check out the rest of his blog if you are intersted in issues in Africa.
