Hurricane Katrina Aftermath Public Blog & Modcast


ironic
Originally uploaded by bamassippi.
I've just launched an open blog and mobcast for people interested in
following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina:

http://katrina05.blogspot.com/

The blog is set up so that anyone can post a blog entry, podcast or
photo to the site. I'm particularly hoping that residents of the Gulf
Coast will be willing to call in and let people know how things are
going for them. Similarly, anyone who would like to share ways to help
out, or wishes to share their thoughts on the hurricane, may post as
well. (I'm still trying to figure out an automated mechanism for posting
video.)

Here's how to participate.

Post a blog entry:

Send an email to katrina2005.comments @ blogger.com. The title of your
email will be the title of the blog entry, and the email body will be
the blog entry body. If you don't want your contact information, you
should remove your signature file. Attachments will not be posted.

Record a podcast:

Dial 1-415-856-0205
Enter login 515-515-5555
PIN code 2005, then the # key
Record your message
Press the # key to save, then the 1 key to post

Post a photo:

The website is collecting photos from Flickr.com that are tagged with
the word "hurricanekatrina." Simply log on to Flickr (or create an
account), upload photos, and use this tag. Photos appear in the right
column of the blog's homepage.


I've also set up a "tag-o-rama" inside the right column of the blog. It
displays links to relevant key words like hurricane, katrina and new
orleans, linking to tagged content from Technorati (blogs), Flickr
(photos) and del.icio.us (websites).

Please feel free to share this email with anyone who might be interested
in participating.

thanks,
