How to participate in the Emergency Social Data Summit


We are having overwhelming response on the ustream link. Please use the direct link and be patient with us. Thank you for tuning in!


Please feel free to join us online for our Emergency Social Data Summit on Thursday, August 12, 2010 from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM (ET). There are several ways to do this:

1) Visit the NextGenWeb site (http://nextgenweb.org) to see the event via ustream.  This ustream will be archived via The Emergency Social Data blog

2) Via Twitter and #crisisdata hashtag.  We will be watching and broadcasting this hashtag all day and there will be an official  Twitter chat at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT featuring questions from @ntenhross and @ikepigott.

3) Add your contributions to the Crisis Data wiki (http://crisisdata.wikispaces.com)

We’re hosting this event to bring together government agencies, emergency management professionals, disaster response organizations, tech companies and concerned citizens to address how to reply to these digital requests for help more effectively. That means what you bring to this discussion is really important. So we’ve created a variety of ways we can all interact.
