TechReach International Simulation Day, Mountain View, Tue 19 Sep 06


After Hurricane Katrina last year, I spent some time in Mississippi and Louisiana working on disaster relief efforts, along with many others high-tech professionals. Most of us were part of hastily organized, ad hoc efforts, with little or nothing in the way of pre-event planning, training, and preparation.

I'm now proud to be part of a new organization that is in the process of forming, called TechReach International. TechReach's goal is to deploy no-cost telecommunications services into humanitarian relief efforts (both domestic disaster relief operations, and international humanitarian operations), using trained/certified volunteer communications specialists and state of the art technology.

TechReach will be hosting a "Simulation Day" in Mountain View (on the Intuit campus) on Tuesday, 19 Sep 2006, 12:30pm-6:00pm. We invite you to stop by, meet us, learn about the organization, see demos of various disaster relief communication and networking technologies, hear a variety of interesting speakers, and contemplate joining or supporting us. Full details are on the web site at

I hope to see you there!
