Get involved in testing various user interfaces for the Haiti Quake relief effort, and that may be instrumental in future crises.
We're looking for people who can help us set up and perform user tests, summarize the findings and offer UX recommendations. So, whether you're a UX Practitioner, QA tester, a graphic designer, a technical writer or editor, who can help with interface design suggestions or clarify documentation and other content, please join us. We'll also need people who are in NGOs or first responders or others who might regularly use online crisis management to test these interfaces
CrisisCamp SV will take place again this Saturday, January 30, 2010 at the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View (see below for venue details) where you will join together with volunteers in three countries and 12 cities to provide local opportunities for citizens to assist in the Haiti quake relief efforts and for future needs.
CrisisCamp is a open, collaborative event held in “barcamp” style with http://www.crisiscommons.org/ to provide local and international responders, Haitian community leaders and non-governmental organizations an opportunity to engage with operations on the ground in Haiti. Tools and resources created by CrisisCamp volunteers can enhance responders' decision-making capability, transparency and collaboration.
Founded in March 2009 through an impromptu Tweetup at the Government 2.0 Camp, a small band of idealists and innovators gathered to discuss the idea of a creating a common community through a mash-up of citizen volunteers, crisis response organizations, international humanitarian relief agencies, non-profits and the private sector. Within minutes, the CrisisCamp concept was born to unite communities, seek common ground and cultivate innovation in the use of technology for mobility and efficiency during crisis.
