craigblog: Katrina survivors need ‘net access: “due to the seeming lack of computing facilities arranged for the neediest victims at the shelters — 40 computer stations for 10,000 victims at the astrodome seems grossly inadequate — and are wondering what else is being done to give victims internet access so that they can connect with the many thousands of amazingly generous US citizens who are looking to do what our government seemingly cannot, at least in a timely fashion.”

All the talk about setting up cybercafes and such seems naive to me. Here’s an idea, which would be logistically hard enough but should still be doable: why doesn’t someone close to the disaster and with a printer PRINT OUT ads like these from craigslist and hands them out in places where people gather?
