CrisisCamp Ireland will having their next monthly meetup in 091 Labs on the 8th of December at 2pm.

At the first meetup on November 3rd, we jumped straight into actively helping out with Hurricane Sandy. The attendees were working with other tech-heads from around the world to try to provide as much info to those on the ground as possible. These activities included:

  • mapping the status of available communications between Queens, Manhattan and Staten Island e.g. telephone outages and wifi hotspots
  • finding a disaster assessment maps for the different States affected
  • working with the Department of Education on maps to get kids back to open schools on Monday
  • working with the Greater New York Hospital Association on updating and mapping the status of the hospitals affected

There’ll be people in for the meetup giving reports on how things have gone since last month and what else was done.

If any of this interests you and you’ll like to learn more or get involved, pop down to the event!

About
An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental political agenda. Without a story, dialogue, or characters, Koyaanisqatsi (1983) (the film’s title is a Hopi word roughly translated into English as “life out of balance”) is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet.

Time: 1 hr. 27 min.
Directed By: Godfrey Reggio
Written By: Michael Hoenig, Ron Fricke

Rotten Tomatoes rating (89%) – http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/koyaanisqatsi_life_out_of_balance/
