Reminder: Please Volunteer and Help Create a Unified Missing Persons Database

More from David Geilhufe on a New Orleans/Katrina digital volunteering effort to create one master Missing Persons aggregrated database. David says

" We need community leaders that can help coordinate a massively parallel data entry effort so that thousands of volunteers can enter information from message boards across the web without too much duplication of effort. The thing we need to resolve first is how to coordinate such a significant effort."

This is something everyone everywhere can help can give an hour--or more.
