Hacking for Humanity

Random Hacks of Kindness is an event where hackers (the good guys; what you read in the papers are crackers but journalists usually don’t care) present software that saves lives. Examples include:

  • Android software to mobilize disaster response teams “with possibly unstable network conditions”
  • HelpMe – a guided first aid emergency and calling app” which collects vital information like time, number of injured people, type on injuries. It also gives first aid tips to those at the site.
  • Or how about wheelmap, a site which finds you restaurants or stores that are accessible with a wheelchair.
