Geek culture conference sessions

5:00pm–5:40pm Wednesday, 07/27/2011
For the past two Open Source Bridge conferences, we've had Geek Choir sessions; in this presentation, we discuss lessons learned from the Geek Choir experience, advantages and disadvantages to mixing music and mathematically-inclined people, the benefits of singing, open source tools to assist in the process, and online open music resources. There also might be applied examples (aka singing).
11:30am–12:10pm Thursday, 07/28/2011
An overview of the current state of tools, groups, and collaborative efforts used to mitigate crisis situations that overwhelm local, state and federal response efforts. Looking at software tools from Ushahidi, Sahana, OpenStreetMap as well as Inveneo, OpenBTS, and more.
