Pakistan Embraces Internet After Quake
There have still been too many mishaps with different relief operations converging on the same area while other areas nearby still hadn't received any help, and other teams (especially non medical ones) who were unsure what to do. There needs to be a way to provide those in the field with an updated picture. Cell phones work, but they waste time as people call back and forth, with numerous dropped calls in between. New teams going on should be able to look at, asses where they are needed, and go there - instead of waiting around. Don't take this as critiscm - the technology is not quite there to be easily able to do all this, but there is a definite need for a better way to get information across to those who need it where they need it.
