Using Collaborative Technology To Assist Emergency Aid

Using Collaborative Technology To Assist Emergency Aid

Hub Culture begins a new digital swarming initiative to aid the survivors of the Christchurch Earthquake.

Stephen Fortune

Hub Culture will deploy it’s global social network and digital currency to help those afflicted by the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. The group is working with a global network of aid agencies, citizens and Hub members to provide support services using Hub related digital swarming and collaboration technologies.

They have begun their initiative by establishing an online Christchurch venue and designating physical meeting points at Christchurch square and a local coffee shop. Hub Culture aims to deploy 100,000 Ven (their digital currency) to help those affected by the earthquake. It is hoped that this will enable exchange by improving liquidity and that projects, services and other capabilities will grow from the local community

Those willing to contribute or find out more about Hub’s effort should visit http://hub.vg/christchurch for more information.
