I returned last night from a few much needed days in the snow. One of the first bits of correspondence I received this morning was from the BBC’s World Service Trust. They have a new blog up with a variety of humanitarianesque stories including this one covering their event “Left in the dark: the unmet need for information in emergency response.” which takes place in London on Dec. 4th. While I might not be able to make it Paul over humanitarian.info might be able to. If you have plans to be in London and would also like to attend click HERE to reserve a spot. They have added me to their blog roll and so I have responded in kind.
