Rising Tide IVPosted by Loki on Jun 21, 2009 in Data Management, Emergency, Event, Social Initiatives, Social Media | 2 comments
Ready or not, the fourth annual Rising Tide conference will be on Saturday August 22 at the Zeitgeist Theatre in the Central City area of New Orleans.
Originally launched by members of the NOLA Blogger community on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the Great Levee Failure of ’05, I’ve watched this conference grow every year since. If you have any interest in New Orleans, disaster recovery, or the use of digital and social media for the common good then you should check it out.
