* Get It Right Away! (GIRA) Team Lead : Prashanth Email firstname.lastname@example.org , Twitter @hnprashanth
It is tough to get the information in panic situations. We might not have internet connectivity in these situation to look for information on Google. Especially in places like India where internet penetration is not that great yet. GIRA is a mobile application which resides inside the phone with a local database containing hospitals phone numbers. Since it's in local database, app doesn't require you to connect to internet. In panic situations user can just launch this app & enter 'Area' OR 'Area Code (Pin)' OR 'Name of the Hospital' to get phone numbers of nearby hospitals. No need to Google, No need to call someone, No need to remember SMS shortcodes!!!
IM version of Get It Right Away app. Just add JIRA@bot.im on your Google Talk & start using it. Send 'Area' OR 'Area Code (Pin)' OR 'Name of the Hospital' & you will get a list of nearby hospitals with phone numbers in response. Ex Queries: Rajaji Nagar, 560020, Fortis. (Note: This bot is just a proof of concept with no real data)

An easy to use Android app that will allow a user to send out an emergency broadcast message across multiple mediums to indicate they are not OK and need help. Security has now been brought under one umbrella with Interaction serving as security for most NGOs. More and more NGO workers on the ground have smartphones. Building a proof of concept application which can help individuals easily communicate there location and status is extremely important.In a disaster zone, one's connectivity might be limited.Start with SMS with GPS location one Might want to SMS central server and have that send out Tweets / Facebook message o Make sense to Ack receipt of SOS message somehow (how if phone is off?)
Revolutionizing social-networking for social causes.
Help Out is an approach to form a bridge between the people who wants to help and the people who need help. Help Out will have a dedicated website where users can register themselves as a helping hand and also search for a helping hand. We will integrate this with Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter , Google Buzz and Location based services like Foursquare.
The main Features are:
As a prototype we started with a facebook app. The app is now in sandbox mode. we will release it on Jan,2011.

Saturday 4th December: Google Bangalore Office
Sunday 5th December: Glomantra Bangalore Office
You need to bring brain and your energy and enthusiasm. Big smiles welcomed. Come with an open mind, and a willingness to jump in. Bring your laptop, or two (you know, for your server (smile)). Although, we realize not everyone has a laptop that may want to partipate, and that is ok too, although you may not be as engaged, but you can help the teams in other support ways. Come for the collaboration too. Some office supplies will be provided, but bring your favorite collaboration gear: You know, your favorite pen, paper, sticky-notes, etc. Power outlets will be in various central and break out rooms. Phone and charger Flashdrives - we find teams like to share files, and sometimes forget to bring this. Optional personal snacks and food for late night (see above CNA event info). Optional camera, etc. I've never been to a hackathon, how does it work?
This is a hackathon/barcamp style event (flavors of both). Check this out: hackathon, barcamp. What this means is that we get folks together and they collaborate on a project for a period of time, in this case, about 26 hours. All these project definitions have a theme of disaster and crisis humanitarian relief. Other than the initial kickoff and some checkpoints throughout the day (oh, and food), there won't be much structure to the event. We can help to direct the participants to particular interests or match skills the day of the event, but it will also be up to you to find your home, projects that interest you, area of research you want to dive down, or folks you want to collaborate with. Ultimately, you will want to become part of a 'team'. And your team could also include other RHoK cities, and you may choose to take a project started in another city, or bring folks onto your team from theirs. This is why we want to ensure we are setup for the collab part too (see below).
You may know some friends before you arrive and have some ideas of things you want to work on, or you may connect with folks before the event, others will not know until they show up on Saturday where they can fit in. Don't worry, it will work out if you are nervous. Although the focus sometimes seems on coders at these events, and we do have a lot of tech folks, a well rounded team often also includes a manager/team-lead (really really important, keeps you on schedule), graphic designers, documentation folks, presentation experts, social media resources, information-experts, architects, usability designers, etc. There are no limits to team size, although we believe that the innovation part happens best with smaller teams, 4-8, although teams of 1 and 2 are common too.
The focus on specific projects, with a team approach is important. Teams will work on their solution, and do a presentation (which could also include a demo) on Sunday, which will be judged. There will be REAL PRIZES for First, Second, and Third place teams (more detail will be published on these).
