What might Google do to help in the aftermath of Katrina?

Via Doc Searls, a discussion on the Omidyar Network

A great discussion, along with some good links in the comments...

This is a thread to brainstorm ideas about better world ideas that Google might implement to help the situation in the aftermath of Katrina.

There are many needs to address in this area, some of which are best done through formally planned and coordinated activities. The other end of the spectrum, involving large numbers of folks coordinating lots of little things, is suitable for decentralized, 'swarm' dynamics.

This becomes more of a discovery process, rather than an 'organization' process. Google excels at this kind of find-the-needle-in-the-haystack search... they just need to be pointed to the haystack


The question for this thread is: given Google's stated goals, resources and capabilities, are there any innovations that we can suggest to Google that would help out in the aftermath of the hurricane?
