Austin computer volunteers needed to help with Katrina victims

Thanks to Jon Lebkowsky for forwarding this to the EFF-Austin mailing list.

The City of Austin is about to open the Palmer Center and the Convention Center for Hurricane Katrina refugees. The Burger Center is already in use for this purpose as you probably know. The computer banks are now being installed in the Palmer and Convention Centers and the refugees will be arriving soon.

They need volunteers to help these folks put their information into a web site that is tracking the refugees so that their loved ones can find them and vice versa. Many of the refugees have no computer skills. If you can volunteer any of your time and skills to help out, please e-mail:

Eric will e-mail you back to let you know when you will be needed.
