Thanks for your interest. We're looking at creating a Crisis Camp platform for Albuquerque. I've watched several times as Albuquerque has struggled to figure out how to apply its enormous brainpower to disasters like the Asian tsunami and more recently Haiti, and we seem to go through the same steps each time. As a result, we're usually slow to respond, and we have trouble unifying. I'm hopeful this can be a platform for a smarter and more coordinated response that taps into the incredible technical and professional knowledge of our state, whether it's Sandia National Labs, Intel, or just one of the many skilled technical or professional people in our area. Thanks again! --Will Reichard
