Ushahidi.com , a GPS Emergency Locating system, has been invaluable after the quake, helping volunteers locate many of the calls for help.  With Port au Prince devastated by the earthquake, addresses have been useless.  By employing Twitter or by simply texting 4636, emergencies could be entered into the system and mapped out by a volunteer via the Internet.  Volunteers located all over the World have been able to help coordinate rescue operations on the ground in Haiti, saving many lives.  Volunteers like my Tweep, Rachelle Houde, who has worked tirelessly since shortly after the quake, deserve much praise.
