Welcome, Scott! Thanks for doing such great work in the world!!!

@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. 😺

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!
