Created at the London chapter of the global event by Will Evans and Josh Balfour! (by the way they are 16 and 19 years old respectively!)
Taking the concept of disaster relief solutions quite literally, this app and tool allows you to find lost people wen a natural disaster occurs by locating them using their wi-fi enabled device. For all the awesome details see their Achievement Card! (please email email@example.com to contact them at their request)
2nd place goes to: Stop Web Disability from Minsk
This team from the Minsk location of the Geeklist #hack4good 0.2 absolutely blew our minds when we saw their presentation. [Watch their presentation… it’s awesome.] They provide people with limited or no use of their arms or hand the ability to use their facial motion and voice to browse the web.
3rd place goes to Donate4Good from Kathmandu! (That’s right… Nepal!)
Providing innovative solutions to global and local problems is what Geeklist #Hack4good is about! This provides a solution using SMS for regions both applicable in Nepal and around the world, for people to apply micro-donations direct to the disaster of their choice. Easily and efficiently. Great job Team Kathmandu, especially as this is the first time Nepal has participated in a global hackathon!
In fact this is the First Ever Global Tandem Geeklist #Hack4good run simultaneously around the world. But not nearly the last… catch the next Geeklist #Hack4good at the Websummit where we are powering their Hackathon!
Congratulations to all Teams, participants, organizers, sponsors and judges… This was a smash hit and we can’t wait to do it again very soon! No go send some High Five love to all of the participating teams!
