Have more time than money? An idea to help Haiti

This is the coolest thing I've come across in a long time. Techies and not-such-techies get together in regional "Crisis Camps" organized by Crisis Commons to build technological tools to help those in, well, crisis.

For example, Crisis Commons has created projects to identify RSS feeds that give important information about Haiti, to create maps to enable supplies and food to be delivered, to create sites to help individuals find their loved ones, to console those in the midst of the devastation, to identify the capacity of hospitals, and much more.
