Scattered Showers of Interest

The establishment, at least a very small subset of it, discovered my work the second week of October.  It wasn’t a thunderstorm of interest — more like scattered showers — but when you’ve been in the desert for a while, a little rain can go a long way.

First stop on my tour was Washington DC, where I spoke on a panel organized by STAR-TIDES at National Defense University about Occupy Sandy, along with Shlomo Roth and Isadora Blachman-Biatch, who was one of the authors of the fantastic Occupy Sandy report funded by DHS.  I think there is video somewhere…

Then, was flown to San Jose by the IEEE for their Global Humanitarian Technology Conference to give a talk about “How Humanitarian Organizations and Grassroots Networks Can Collaborate on Disaster Response and Recovery

The last day of the conference I got on a red eye flight back to New York City so I could give “Grassroots Disaster Relief Network Response to Superstorm Sandy: Successes and Opportunities” at The Christian Regenhard Center for Emergency Response Studies (RaCERS) of John Jay College.
