Hurricane Recovery

Thank you to so many of you for raising your hands already to help with Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts, especially when so many of you are still without power and without offices and apartments yourselves.

We expect that we will be receiving more requests for assistance in the coming days and we are working on hackathon plans for next week (including working with hackathons that had previously been scheduled).

In the next 24 hours, here are some things you can do to help:
