Richard Campbell – “Saving The World One App at a Time”

SDN Event Richard Campbell II - 800

In our series of SDN Event session recordings we published today our third session from SDN Event June 23rd. This session is the second session by Richard Campbell that day titled “Saving the World One App at a Time”.

Abstract 

Mobile and cloud technology are changing the business world – how about disaster response? Join Richard Campbell as he tells his story of software, hardware and charity that ultimately has led him to the Humanitarian Toolbox (htbox.org). The Humanitarian Toolbox is an open source initiative to build software for disaster relief – both for the Non-Governmental Organizations that are involved in disaster relief, the citizen volunteers that donate their time to assist during a disaster and the disaster victims themselves. Richard will take you along on his journey of the convergence of mobile, cloud and open source software to help save lives.

In this session Richard explained to us all about the Humanitarian Toolbox and how you can help by putting your efforts into a project that literally is able to save lives and help where it is needed the most in the world.

If you have been using Windows Live Writer to do your blogging you know it was a bit of a PITA to get this up and running on your current platform. Well, this now will change as Microsoft added this to their stack of Open Source software, to keep it alive and allow you to propose enhancements:

“Open Live Writer is an open source application enabling users to author, edit, and publish blog posts. It is based on a fork of the wellloved but not actively developed Windows Live Writer code. Open Live Writer is provided under a MIT license.”

If you read this it is the evidence that it works, as it is written using the download link to the Open Live Writer installer you can find here:

Go to the Open Live Writer website and read all the details, or even better … fork it and start working on it!
