I've recieved so much mail on this that I have recieved this
additional information on the Red Cross' request.
Computerworld has a page to sign-up if you are willing to donate IT
goods or services to help in the wake of the tragedy in New York,
please enter the information below. If your donation will be needed,
you will be contacted in the coming days.
Again, the one main thing that the Red Cross needs is time.

I received the following replies from the Wash DC Red Cross Office as
well as Joe Leo in NY. What they really need right now is time. The
response from all of you and hundreds of others was overwhelming -
even those who packed up items and took them to NYC! If you need to
contact someone regarding this, call or email Lisa Moczynski,

Excellence, (202) 639-3342 in Washington DC,

I cannot express, as just an American Citizen, my thanks to those of
you who contributed, especially to those of you not form the USA.
It puts SUPPORT back in IT Support!
May God Bless you.

I am not able to check email with any regularity at this time. Please
forgive any delays in responding to you. If you are responding to the
request for assistance after the World Trade Center disaster, thank you! The
support that we have received from the national I.T. community has been
overwhelming. We received over a thousand offers of assistance and equipment
in less than twenty-four hours! What we thought would be sent to five or six
people has made it from sea to shining sea, awesome is the power of the
internet. What we really need MOST at the moment is time... time to sort
through what has been offered and to reassess our needs. Please forgive us
if we can't respond right away and please don't forward our message at this
time. I don't know how else to thank you all for your compassion and
generosity but I feel privileged to be part of the I.T. community, a
community in every sense of the word.
