John,

I'm not hearing much (out here in California), but the few
points I know of are being tracked on:

http://kgate.virtual.net/cgi-bin/wiki.cgi?action=Browse&id=TechAssistance

Currently (2:58am PST, Sept 15) we have:

     Another Resource/Assistance Coordination page (Telehouse Europe based) 
          http://www.sourcedest.org/resourcelist.rhtm 
     Wall Street Technology Association coordination page 
          http://www.wsta.org/forum/list.php?f=4 
     NANOG Archives, many offers to assist in NYC and elsewhere 
          http://www.merit.edu/mail.archives/html/nanog/index.html 


Via NANOG: 

According to www.nysemo.state.ny.us which is the NY state emergency 
management center, the number to volunteer your time for
the cause is 800-801-8092. They'll put you in a database with 
your name and phone number and expertise, which is available to the
command posts. They particularly want firemen and medical people, 
but they seem receptive to everything. 

------end snip--------

Please email us anything that you come up with that isn't listed
above.  We are working with other resource listers to share info.
Thanks much!

It has been mentioned on this list and others that there is a
requirement for volunteers in NYC to help bring things back on line
from a network and machine perspective.

I'll put my money where my mouth is and say that I'll be available in
NYC on Monday at 06:00.  What I have not been able to determine is
how I find a company that needs what I can do.  Is there a
clearinghouse for volunteer IP-networking or UNIX systems staff?  The
Red Cross seems like an unusual place to go for figuring out what
firms need what help... they seem to me to be a place to go to assist
people, not companies.  I'm not an EMT, a social worker, or a ditch
digger, so I'll stick with helping with what I know how to do.

Do any of you who are closer to the question know where a person
should report to get an assignment, and what data I should furnish to
make the process easier?

Sorry for the almost-non-operational content here - I'm hoping
someone can reply to the list with a pointer to a location that will
lend some operational content to this recently high noise/low signal
discussion.

Otherwise, I'll wear a sign around my neck with my resume on it that
says "FREE NETWORKING GEEK" on Monday AM.  Yes, I'm serious.  :)
