Hello tooters, nice to meet you, I’m Scott & I help people during disasters by “social listening” (on all SM platforms) & getting the info to people who can help. I work with professional emergency managers & disaster aid workers, as well as volunteer digital humanitarians around the world. I’m very interested & enthusiastic about #Mastodon. I’ve posted about it on my blog here: https://thinkdisaster.com
I’ve collected up all of the articles, posts, videos, resources & tools that I can find.
Here’s a link (below) directly to the blog post mentioned above. I’’ve only been on Mastodon for a week and a half, but I’m really enjoying it and look forward to participating in this amazing, diverse, enthusiastic, funny and kind community. https://thinkdisaster.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/mastodon-yet-another-sm-platform-for-smem-and-vost-to-watch-during-incidents-and-disasters/?preview=true&preview_id=791&preview_nonce=dba56dd15f&frame-nonce=d93ef9e9b3
Welcome, Scott! Thanks for doing such great work in the world!!!
@EuphoriaLavender Thanks Euphoria, much appreciated. :) Happy Friday!
You're welcome, Scott!
Happy Friday to you, too!!! 😺
@EuphoriaLavender @mastodontips Thanks! I wrote that post to encourage my emergency management and disaster-working friends would have a starting place. I've been searching/saving info, resources & tools, and there is so much already! There are so many enthusiastic people working on and posting about Mastodon, and the instance builders and users really seem to want to build a great place to be. I hope that I can contribute something useful here. :)
You seem like a person likely to contribute something useful wherever you are. The world needs more examples of such people. 😺
Wow, so comprehensive and impressive!
@stragu Thanks! happy to be here. :)
Hi Scott! I'm Liza and I work at Arizona State. Myself and other folks also work with SM data & disaster, specifically around risk amplification, heat, and power outages. Your work sounds really interesting!
