Networking For Good

Just wanted to draw your attention to this amazing project that sprang up through the use of Twitter and has resulted in a book which will raise funds for the Red Cross in Japan.

What started as a tweet has turned into an eBook project to benefit survivors of the earthquake and tsunami that have claimed the lives of more than 11,500 people and left more than 16,500 missing in Japan.

The project, “2:46” — or #Quakebook, as it is known on Twitter — has drawn dozens of international writers, artists, translators and contributors, the project’s organizers say. According to the Quakebook blog, sci-fi novelist William Gibson and musician and artist Yoko Ono also have contributed to the eBook, which will be available for purchase on Amazon.com.

Proceeds will go to the Red Cross in Japan, organizers say.
