On July 29th, 2014, the White House held an Innovation for Disaster Response and Recovery Demo Day. Over 1,500 people participated online and in-person and I got to meet so many people that I have known online for years. Needless to say, the day itself was great, but the connections and conversation with everyone in attendance was amazing.
Several people have written summaries and opinions of the event. I thought it would be great to capture a number of them in one blog post.
From the White House:
They also published a Demo Day fact sheet that includes summary descriptions of all the presentations.
