I have to say that I am immensely proud of all the Red Cross disaster relief workers who have used New Media tools to share the word about what is really happening. You guys have really picked up the ball and run with it — and now more than ever it’s important to showcase what disaster relief is, and how it impacts the lives of those in need.
Go visit the Midwest floods online newsroom and see for yourself. There’s an impressive array of tools, from Flickr to Utterz to Slide to Facebook integration. Definitely check out the Google Maps disaster operations mashup.
I’m proud of you guys. Every one of you.
