From Random Hacks of Kindness
 Browser Alerts Problem Definition
Show emergency alerts (hurricane, tsunami, tornado, warnings, etc) in browsers. Constrain to IP geolocations in warning area. Start with a desktop plugin, migrate to a native browser feature, meld with CAP standard, deploy as a mobile application. Enable forwarding of message to friends/contacts.
- Compatible with all major browsers
- Very robust hackproofing/verification mechanism(s)
- Who has access to inputs? How is this different in different countries/areas?
- Can this be made less text-dependent to make it more universally understandable without translations?
 Use Cases
1. A string of tornadoes is bearing down on the US Midwest.
2. A tsunami is expected to hit the eastern coastline of New Zealand.
- Ability for users to opt-in/opt-out?
- Data display considerations (CAP-based?): issuing agency, area of impact, severity of impact, estimated time of impact, etc.
- Turn off alert once acknowledged/read or leave on and stream updates?
- Consider color (red?) to communicate urgency
- How to communicate sense of urgency while reducing/mitigating false alarms as a result of IP geolocation imprecision?
- Provide ability to pass the information on through several outlets: email friend, sms friend, post to FB, etc.
