International Crisis Mapping Conference

Patrick Meier, along with Jen Ziemke, has put together the first CrisisMapping Conference, which will run this October 16-18, 2009 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Of course, here at Ushahidi we’re so deep into this space that we’re planning on having David, Juliana and Brian be there. AndChris Blow, who has been a part of the community since the beginning, is also going to be in attendance. Not to mention the fact that Patrick Meier, the event’s co-curator, is a long-time adviser to our team. (Ory and I will both be at Pop!Tech that week, so we can’t make it)

If you can make it, sign up now, as I’m told that they’re beginning to run out of space.
