Hacking for Good: Coders and Community Workers Unite in San Francisco - Business - GOOD 
www.good.is

How can tech wiz kids help the poor? Build products with their needs in mind.


I thought of Noisebridge when I saw this article, and how-- with some creativity, innovation, and good ole hacking-- Noisebridge could REALLY have an impact in improving the world we live in.  Something like this would have clear, tangible, measureable benefits and could offer those who are homeless-- not just in SF but other cities-- assistance in helping them get back on their feet.  Partnering with organizations already focusing on this would really leverage things.


I wish I were in a position to be able to take action on this myself, but right now I'm not.  So, at the least, I thought I should share this on the discuss list; maybe it will get others thinking as much as it did for me. 


Peace,

Duncan
