Rallying Tech Volunteers to Help Post Hurricane Sandy

We made it through a tremendous storm, but many in our community are facing significant losses. Our thoughts are with them, and to do what we can to help, NY Tech Meetup and New Work City are organizing volunteers with technology skills to help with relief efforts and help New York-area businesses and organizations get their technology back up and running after Hurricane Sandy. For now, we are starting with creating a database so that we have a group of people who have already raised their hands and are ready to go as it becomes more evident which organizations and businesses in the city need help.
