It has been a momentous year, which began with the unprecedented disasters that swept our globe and ended with the launch of the Emergency 2.0 Wiki – a free global resource for using social media in emergencies.
And today, we are thrilled to announce that we officially became a not for profit company, Emergency 2.0 Wiki Ltd, just in time for Christmas!
Our three founding directors are David Eade, Co-founder and Coordinator, Government 2.0 in Queensland Community of Practice (CoP that initiated the Wiki), Denver Gibson, Wiki Working Group Member and Business Development Manager at Mammoth Media, our technology and web hosting partners, and myself (Eileen Culleton), Project Leader and now proud CEO (albeit in a voluntary capacity)!
We would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for helping to make the vision of creating an Emergency 2.0 Wiki – a free global resource for using social media and new technologies in emergencies – a reality in 2011.
Now we look forward to working together to making our vision – of building resilient communities empowered with the knowledge to use social media in emergencies – a reality in 2012.
With warmest wishes and lots of cheer,
Founder and CEO (Voluntary role)
