Reworking We Have, We Need Exchange

Yanira Gonzalez and a table  of volunteers studied a web site for collecting and distributing supplies and services for Haiti,  and they found it lacking. Now, the wall next to their  table is covered with yellow sheets of paper listing their ideas for revamping the site.

The group studied “We Have, We Need Exchange,” a site listed as Completed on the Crisis Commons Wiki, and it discovered that the site cannot accept cell phone texts.  The group thinks the site, intended to be used by Non-Governmental Organizations,  needs to be rebuilt from scratch to accept cell phone texts.

On the new site, people will be able to text their need for supplies and services. People with supplies and services  will  also be able to advertize them  by text.  Not every one has a computer, but most people have a cell phone with texting abilities, said Damian Montero, Fort Lauderdale Web developer. So it’s important that they be able to access the site.

Ideas at the table flew quickly, and the considerations going in to the project are numerous. Volunteers have begun assigning duties  to be completed after CrisisCamp and are hoping to start a wiki about their efforts.

Volunteers interested in getting involved can  e-mail The site will be called “We have, We need Plus.”

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    tell someone!
