Tech with a purpose : Volunteering for GreaterDC Cares #DCCARES

Peter Corbett of iStrategyLabs is helping the Greater DC Cares with a way to get help and support from the tech community. Please take a look at the wiki Peter has setup:   that has information about projects that can help non-profits.

I was browsing through the wiki and the projects in the Web Design Category are very interesting . They appear simple and could be completed pretty soon. Along with a feeling of having done something I am sure the DC tech/blogger community will definitely pitch in to promote the people or organizations who help in this effort. I know Peter Corbett definitely will and he has a lot of ideas :) .Greater DC Cares serves as the hub of the non-profit community in DC - they provide service to all the smaller non-profs (shelters, soup kitchens, etc.)

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flig
