Chris Warner and Amber Alerts


Chris Warner, who I've written about before with respect to Earths911.org has launched a new project for doing Amber Alerts. He launched it at this month's meeting of the National Governor Association. I saw it (and Chris) on ABC's Good Morning America yesterday. This is a very important and interesting project. The potential goes well beyond Amber Alerts to all kinds of alerting from government. I put together a presentation on the use of event notificationin Homeland Security over a year ago. Earth911.org's stock in trade has been connecting local government providers of information with local people who need that information using a nationally-based information platform. This new project capitalizes on that perfectly.
