Join us this Thursday to discuss #CrisisData

Over the past year we’ve noticed that you increasingly contact us at our Twitter and Facebook account with requests for emergency help.

We suspected we were not alone among disaster responders in receiving this sort of info so we conducted a survey that indeed proves you are increasingly turning to the social web for help.

Because of this, we’re gathering government, nonprofits, social technologists, and engaged citizens to begin evaluating the increased role of the public in disaster response in the age of the social web.

>> Join us on August 12 for a live ustreamed event.
>> Read our white paper research on this issue
>> Press release about the Summit, the issue, and the research
>> Follow #crisisdata on Twitter to submit questions and to be part of the discussion
