More on IBM tsunami recovery aid: "volunteer and corporate support that includes $1 million in cash and services, a total that may increase. IBM Corporate Community Relations worked closely with its US business partners to secure the technology -- as well as extra batteries, country-specific power supplies, Web cameras and fingerprint scanners -- over the New Years holiday weekend. IBM volunteers are now in the process of preparing the equipment for shipment to Bangkok, Thailand, where they will be distributed to outlying areas. IBM managers in Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and Thailand have received calls from officials in those countries seeking recovery assistance. The IBM Crisis Response Team has been in the region for nearly a week coordinating universal technology solutions that can be used across geographies to help coordinate disaster recovery efforts."  Mark Prutsalis of Strong Angel II is leading one IBM team in the region.  11:17:17 AM  permalink
