Volcanic ash - networking stranded travellers

I discovered there is a Facebook group for stranded travellers, that could be a good start for networking opportunities around the globe. From their fronpage message:

"Hundreds of thousands of us are stranded, thanks to billowing ash from Iceland's Mt. Elslksjlaresssrfzzzt. Let's come together, swap stories, keep our spirits up, and offer advice for coping with our situations.

TWITTER: #getmehome #ashtag for up-to-the-minute opportunities

Find HELP in the Country-by-Country threads under the DISCUSSIONS tab (upper center of this page)

Find RIDES at http://www.roadsharing.com

Find LODGING and RIDES via http://spy.appspot.com/find/getmehome

Find BOTH in this group's Discussion tab (above)

MORE HELP at VOLCANOHELP.EU be sure to post there!

Find SANITY by realizing you are doing the best that you possibly can. The volcano is, well, bigger than all of us."

Is it going to be possible to start a skills exchange just for a few days' labour? It would be worthwhile for people who are struggling to pay for extra accomodation and so on. Not sure how to take this forward, any ideas?

Oh-- thanks-- should have known you were on it, Starling! I posted the link to the African discussion on Facebook on your Kenya blog post.

Found these as well: Crisis Mappers, and Crisis Mappers on Twitter, and another Facebook page: Gathering Under the Ash Cloud. From what I see, though, not many people are responding. I think people who are stranded so far are probably just waiting and assuming they'll be underway soon. I wonder if this is true?

Thanks Sarah :) It would be good to start a wiki page to collect all the relevant links up - actually the wiki could be the architecture we need to do a skill-share as well?

Created a page on the wiki for a start, please could you add those links you've found? Or I will do it when I next get a mo, gotta go. x

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
