Social media played a pivotal role in rallying resources from outside of the Christchurch quake zone, but The Press had hard-copy news in subscribers’ hands the following day whilst power, phone and internet was still down.

Tim McNamara talks us through how eq.org.nz came into being and evaluates the role of new media in disaster recovery.

Big thanks to Optimal Usability who are shouting us all pizza and iWantMyName who are chipping in for some beers. That means UP can make a donation to the Red Cross Christchurch Quake Fund. Please bring along some gold coins to donate to the fund.
