Social Networking and Disaster Recovery – A talk by Peter Kerre, November 10, 2011

Peter Kerre moved from Minneapolis to Manhattan in 2010 to pursue his career as a nationally recognized DJ and as an information security specialist, but he knew that he needed to help out after the May 22, 2011 tornado that devastated his old neighborhood. Using a combination of Facebook and word of mouth, he created the North Minneapolis Post Tornado Watch, which organized some of the most successful donation drives and cleanup efforts to help all those who had been affected by the disaster.
