Donna Braquet is researching the impact of information in the lives of Hurricane Katrina survivors. She has created an online survey that should take about 30 minutes to complete and asks questions about the information you needed after Katrina, where and how you found it, and how you provided information to others before, during, and after the storm.
She will also be conducting in-person and phone interviews on this topic in the New Orleans area August 7 – 21, 2006 about this same topic. If you would like to participate, please contact me or list your e-mail address or phone number at the end of the survey. Or download a flyer (pdf) about the interviews.
P.S. If you want a better practice, start using the 80/20 Principle.
One place Donna might find lots of useful information is in our Hurricane Digital Memory Bank (https://hurricanearchive.org). We’ve collected more than 3,000 stories, images, files, blog posts, etc., from the Katrina/Rita disasters and already more than 1,000 are available online at our website.
