Microsoft Brings .Net to Katrina Relief Effort

Spread the word about , a site which helps unite the victims of Katrina with their families and loved ones.

This solution was set up by a group of Microsoft volunteers, leveraging a wide set of our products and technologies such as Speech Server, SQL 2005, ASP.NET, Smart Clients and Web Services.

"Picture this ... a family waiting to hear from a loved one who was in the disaster area, they've not heard from them since the hurricane hit. Then they get a call saying that their loved one has been found and is at such-and-such evacuation center. That's what we're working for." (More about it here: "Microsoft Brings .Net to Katrina Relief Effort")

Yet another example of the great people and spirit which make me proud to work for this company.

    It’s really great that they did this, but when I first read the title it sounded like a distastefull attempt to get marketing brownie points.

    Maybe that’s only me.
