For the past few years I have been trying to find ways that technology can be used to "Serve those that Serve Others".
Last week I spoke about some of the lessons learned from my deployment during Operation Hurricane Katrina at a technology conference called the Web2.0 Summit. Video is now available, and I thought you might be interested in watching it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qogx6edklng
Please send me your thoughts, feedback, and ideas... and help me spread the word.
Robbins is also volunteer Firefighter/EMT and Emergency Manager, and led a task force deployed in Operation Hurricane Katrina.
In this High Order Bit talk from Web Summit 2.0 2008, Robbins uses examples from his Katrina experiences and other high-profile events to talk about the different learning curves for emergency services managers and Web 2.0 experts, to address the question: When and where are Web 2.0 useful in disaster response? What is necessary for disaster services professionals and Web 2.0 professionals to learn from each other?
The very shortest version: Officer Nohejl is a school resource officer in Pasco County. He set up a MySpace account--most of his MS "friends" are students in the Pasco County School District. One of his 170+ friends had a link to a porn site.
Now Officer Nohejl is now under investigation by the Florida attorney
general’s cyber crimes unit and the New Port Richey Police Department.
What? An individual is responsible for a third-party link? That's crazy.
I am tired of my blog design but I don't really know what I want. I also want to use more graphics but...well, I am hoping that the good people at Mandarin Design will be able to lift me out of the doldrums.
