Given that I’m pulling my hair out on this damn blip migration, I’m taking a break for a couple days to work on what’s turning out to be a community project called katrinalostandfound.org – it’s a public database of people displaced by Hurricane Katrina in NOLA.
If you’re a developer and you want to get in on this, volunteer your efforts over here on this message board. It’s going to be a standard ASP/Access/Perl imalgamation, or at least that’s what it’s shaping up to be right now, although I can run PHP and .net on this server, too. If you know any of these languages, this is a good alternative to donating money that you might not have – donate your talent.
Right now we’re concentrating on creating an aggregator tool so that we can consolidate CNN’s and the NOLA local media databases into a central place.
