Using the crowd to save people after disasters
from Fast Company
In the aftermath of a major disaster, it's hard for aid workers to know what's happening on the ground, and to direct resources where they are needed most. That's when text messaging and social media can help. By analyzing tweets and other snippets, it's possible to see trends — say, where people are trapped, or where there are water shortages — and do something about them.
