Finding people: (Update: If you are looking for Katrina survivors, go to Katrinalist.net)
Inspired by Staci Kramer, I’ve been encouraging anyone with the tech savvy necessary, to develop a means to pool data from all the Katrina survivor databases springing up.
The Katrina Peoplefinder Project, which I learned about from David Weinberger, is doing that using volunteers to scrape data and merge it into an interchange. (Sorry if I’m not describing it correctly.)
Here is the HTML to put the button on your page:
