Cameron Sinclair founded the wonderful organization Architecture for Humanity that does so much meaningful work in distressed areas like Burma, New Orleans and now Haiti.
What’s so exciting about their work is their commitment to emergency and long-term relief, their insistence and transparency and the insights Cameron provides as to how NGO’s and relief organizations can work even more effectively together.
His story is truly inspiring as are his ideas for how relief work and technology can work together. You can hear more at the TED site too where he discusses open source architecture in depth. Hope you enjoy them both.
