Lessons and Theory: The impact of technology on humanitarian relief by carpediemdg

In June 2007, the Economist came out with a great article titled, ‘Flood, famines and mobile phones.” It’s about how technology is transforming humanitarian relief operations. Given how angry the Gods have been with our planet off late, its highly relevant and worth reading in its entirety.

It also mentions an excellent resource on humanitarian disasters and relief work across the globe – ReliefWeb. According to the Economist article, the site got 3 million hits the day after the Tsunami struck.
