Smartmobbing disaster relief

More on social networks and disaster relief: a blog called WorldWideHelp is for a "General newsgroup and rallying point for power bloggers, wiki experts, database adepts, etc., for calls to action and volunteers to provide information post-disasters."

According to a post on Smartmobs - 'This blog was started by several founders and members of the SEA EAT (South East Asian Earthquake And Tsunami) blog, wiki and database, which gained worldwide attention at the time of the earthquake and tsunami on 26th December, 2004. The group, now The World Wide Help Group, has since remobilised to aid in other relief efforts.'

This is a great example of the blogosphere and collaborative cooperation working for disaster relief.
