Crowd Sourcing The Disaster

In this episode we take the spirit of DIY and see how it's being applied to disaster management.

First up we chat with Pieter Franken from safecast.org about the work they are doing building and operating a crowd sourced radiation monitoring system in Japan, then we sit down with Dr Paul Gardner-Stephen and talk about the Serval Project, a project that could turn your mobile phone into an essential part of a post disaster communications network.
