sandy 0.0.2 Jump to Story

Hurricane Sandy, which hit the eastern US last week, is gone, but the destruction in her path remains. Among other things, power outtages still affect much of the country’s most populated area. sandy is a gem built to help developers consume power outage data for the Greater New York area. It’s a beautiful sign that open source development can help people in tough situations. It’s good to remember that there are people who could benefit from that kind of information every day, not during massive storms. So while hacking can be fun and pay the bills, let’s remember that knowledge can help and empower people. Open source and open data do matter.
