Do you want to help with Sandy response? Come design, code, and learn with other people this weekend at Jigsaw Renaissance in Seattle.
Make sure your programs are up to date. Learn how github works. Learn about potential projects at http://www.hurricanehackers.com/projects. There will also be talks by local Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) on how technology can be used (and not) in this situations.
This event is free and open to the public. You don't have to be technical to volunteer time. Also, you may show up at anytime during the day for as long as you wish - although obviously we will get the most done with the most people there. Due to short notice, we won't be able to provide food at each event - please come prepared to feed and caffeinate yourselves. Any donations given to a location will be used to support coffee first.
Full list of events can be found at http://crisiscommons.org/2012/10/30/sandycrisiscamp/

CrisisCamp will bring together domain experts, developers, and first responders around improving technology and practice for humanitarian crisis management and disaster relief.
Each and every day, people across the world can find themselves in crisis. Whether it be for a day, a month or an area of social distress, we all have a common need to connect with loved ones, access information and offer assistance to others.
CrisisCamps are hosted in a barcamp style where great minds come together to share their knowledge and expertise for social good.
