Angelo, on behalf of the World Wide Help Group sent out this email:
"In response to the Java Quake of 27th May, 2006, we have set up the Java Quake Help Wiki (http://javaquake.worldwidehelp
The wiki has the basic design and structure in place but we URGENTLY NEED online volunteers to help us out with the wiki in terms of the following tasks:
1. Move relevant content from tsunamihelp ( tsunamihelp.info & quakehelp.asiaquake.org)
2. Scrape info from the blogs covering the quake on technorati
3 Post translations from helpjogja.net blog to the wiki (via Andy Carvin's link: toggletext.com)
4. Remove irrelevant info
5. Add static info on the main page
6) Spread the word out about the wiki
We have been and are in touch with ICRC-Geneva, TSF & IFRC and are receiving important information such as assessments directly from them which shows that they recognize our relief efforts on the blog and wiki. Additionally, we are being provided with 24/7 info updates from aid workers and their teams in the field and are also blogging at World Wide Help ( blog.worldwidehelp.info). We been requested by a couple of NGOs to coordinate and communicate with them in publishing their situational reps on the wiki and blog.
Any help from all of you for the organization and management of content on the wiki is most appreciated. If you're interested in lending a hand please head over to the wiki or drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org "
Meanwhile, some other useful links:
"I just posted several phone numbers here that might help.The Indonesian Red Cross hotline number (24 hours) is on the right column of the blog, you can contact them too. HelpJogja.net has posted a damages database per village, contact number, condition, injuries, dead and so on, it is on continuously updated."
